Burroughs MCP (not the evil one from Tron)

The Burroughs large systems and their operating sytstem (MCP) pioneered many features that we take for granted including virtual memory, multitasking, the NX-bit, and an OS written in a higher level language ... all back in the 1960s! They also had many features which modern systems lack, such as hardware enforced type safety and immunity to buffer overflows. This talk will explain all the above and more.—DEVOPS! Hippest of buzzwords, earner of thousands! Learn to harness the immense power of devops for yourself, by coming to the Spring 2017 Computer Club Workshop/Talk Series. We will tell you the tricks that will allow you to transcend the annoyances of administration and offenses of operations, and return to the elegant, pure simplicity of raw code!These talks take place every Wednesday starting at 8:00 PM in Wean 5403 throughout the semester.Sponsored by Green Hills Software
