This site covers the lab sessions for the Distributed and Mobile Programming Paradigms course ( replacing the Software Distribution and Mobility Seminar. The aim of the lab sessions is twofold. First, students put in practice some of the concepts about distributed programming paradigms seen at the theory class. Second, students get familiar with AmbientTalk, the distributed programming language used for the project.
In each session, students implement a small application or a subset of an application in AmbientTalk. The idea is to incrementally implement the application starting from a skeleton code. The exercises start from the basics of the AmbientTalk language and gradually introduce how to use concurrent and distributed programing abstractions such guards, asynchronous message passing, distributed programming with tuple spaces, and peer-to-peer networks. They also deploy some of their applications on real devices such as Android phones and tablets.
See the official course site at PointCarré for more information on the course itself.
Here comes a temporary schedule for the lab sessions. Assignments and solutions will be published before and after each session, respectively.
