System programming is the activity of programming system software. The primary distinctive characteristic of systems programming when compared to application programming is that systems programming requires a greater degree of hardware awareness.

In system programming, often limited programming facilities are available. The use of automatic garbage collection is not common and debugging is sometimes hard to do. The runtime library, if available at all, is usually far less powerful, and does less error checking. Because of those limitations, monitoring and logging are often used; operating systems may have extremely elaborated logging subsystems.
