Free course

Distributed paradigms

Free statement of participation on completion

This free course, Distributed paradigms, looks at some of the architectural and programming paradigms used in distributed system development. You will learn about synchronous and asynchronous message passing, distributed objects technology and event-based bus architecture, before finally moving on to tuple architecture.

Course learning outcomes

After studying this course, you should be able to:

  • describe some of the architectural and programming paradigms used in distributed system development
  • describe message passing and the role of protocols within a message passing paradigm
  • introduce the concept of a distributed object
  • describe how event-based architectures are used within distributed system development
  • introduce one implementation of an event-based architecture.
