      In this subject, the student will discover the activity of the Operating System, dividing it into three basic components: Resource Virtualization, Concurrency and Persistence. The student will learn the different policies and mechanisms used by operating systems, along with the hardware, and how it provides basic services through system calls. Additionally, the student will learn to operate in a Unix environment (GNU-Linux) both from the point of view of user and programmer, making use of the shell, as well as the C language and the necessary Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
