- Skills in systems-level programming. How to build a working prototype of a non-trivial distributed system including its architecture, design, and implementation.
- Skills in the languages, frameworks, and tools used to build a prototype distributed system
- Designing and performing performance measurements on distributed code
- Analyze the behavior of the developed prototype(s)
- Skills in presenting a system, giving a demonstration of it, and identify lessons learned.
- Identify research problems and challenges in distributed systems
- List the state-of-art tools and techniques for addressing research problems and challenges in distributed systems
- Competence to read scientific literature, and carefully extract information from it and present it coherently in public.
- Competence in selecting a suitable set of programming languages, frameworks, and tools for a given problem domain.
- Competence in asking relevant questions about computer based systems
