Distributed and Mobile Programming Paradigms - Lab sessions


This site covers the lab sessions for the Distributed and Mobile Programming Paradigms course. In each session, students implement small applications in the AmbientTalk distributed programming language. The exercises start from the basics of the AmbientTalk language and gradually introduce how to program distributed applications running on mobile devices.

During these exercises, students apply the concepts seen in the seminar part of the course to software development. For example, they get hands-on experience with guards, asynchronous message passing, distributed programming with tuple spaces, and peer-to-peer networks. They also deploy some of their application on real devices such as Android phones.

See the official course site at PointCarré for more information on the course itself.
