NEW (9.2.21): We will do an online exam using Artemis. All registered students will be sent an email with directions, including a test exam a week before to check the tech.
Old original text (just for reference, now invalid) : Current plan is presence exam in room PH 2501 (physics building). Please be there 15 minutes before. Duration: 75 minutes. An example exam from WS10/11 can be found here (exam will be 75 minutes not 60 minutes as this one from WS10/11).
During the semester, instead of the lecture, there will be 3 labs spanning the timeframe of one lecture each, with date announced in advance. Topics for the labs are getting insights into the working of a process VM, Java JVM, and a system VM.
