For the Uni Bonn German programme "Bachelor Informatik" we recommend participation in the course BA-INF 101 "Kommunikation in Verteilten Systemem (KIVS)". All lecture material (slides, assignment sheets, ...) is available in English language and maybe helpful also for Master students who have not done the BA degree in Bonn.
