The course abstract is at http://csce.unl.edu/~witty/sp2004/csce496/, the Rotor bit is "...students will examine the actual implementation of these runtime systems. We will use Microsoft CLI engine which is the core runtime infrastructure for .NET platform. Students will also work closely with the provided profiling interface (when available) or instrument the source code of the CLI engine to get information such as object behaviors, execution time of each runtime component, etc."
It would be cool to find someone who is actually in this class – who is in it? Are other schools doing the same thing?
Maybe we can get Rico to be a guest lecturer ;-).
