Networking fundamentals

Computers are seldom used as stand-alone machines: at home, at the office, on the move, we are almost always connected to a local network, to the internet, to servers in the cloud.

This course concentrates on many aspects of data communication and networks: from hardware to system software and applications; from conceptual and architectural information to anecdotic information, specific procedures and useful tips.
