orthogonal :

I honestly wish CMU would release the lectures and full class materials for 15-213 (the course most typically associated with the bomb lab mentioned here). The lectures combined with the accompanying text and labs form a masterpiece, and it's a shame the community at large can't take better advantage of it. It's like SICP for systems : that effing good.

The tests, however, are just awful. Those can safely be dumpstered.

Even if you can't get access to this course, I highly recommend that you read the text book for it.

Computer Systems: A Programmer's Perspective: https://www.amazon.com/Computer-Systems-Programmers-Perspect...

It's one of the best books ever written on this subject.

One of my courses at UQ (Australia) followed some of it and I'm glad that I took it. There's no better way to asses the skills involved in debugging/analyzing machine dumps than the binary bomb assignment.


That includes PDFs of the lectures and videos of said same. It looks similar to Berkeley's CS 61C.

Thanks for the link. Didn't realize they'd started both recording lectures and releasing them. Probably has something to do with the change in teaching faculty for the course. Wonder if the second half of the semester is available somewhere (I assume it'll be uploaded throughout the summer).

hackermailman's post elsewhere in these comments links to: http://csapp.cs.cmu.edu/3e/labs.html https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=14522391 which further links to lectures: https://scs.hosted.panopto.com/Panopto/Pages/Sessions/List.a...

It sounds like you've been through the course - why not release it yourself?

I don't have the lectures. At least when I took it, they were very specifically not recorded (for some hand-wavy pseudo-pedagogic reasons).

The labs and text are already available online.
