Systems Software

work in progress . . . 2019-06-18

I create systems software
     invisible programs hidden inside your computer
like operating systems, networks, databases, languages  . . .

Systems software
     makes concrete things like chips and wires, zeros and ones,
        into abstract things that you use : 
             like email, spreadsheets and web browsers, . . .



  EXAMPLE:   See a modern control system:       Bee Team Software

Typical computer workloads encompass:

- a single program doing some user task like email or a document

- a stack of programs awaiting their turn for service

- a  high level collection of many tasks performing a daily workload,

      using the operating system plus other intermediate programs,

      such as databases, networks, lanugage packages, etc.

. . . more later . . .
