You can also download the complete set of practice questions we have covered thus far updated continuously. Note that Assignment 1 is an individual effort, while Assignment 2 and the two projects must be team efforts. Assignments will not be accepted 24 hours past the original deadline. If you have an emergency e. You must notify the instructor before the deadline. Learn Go early and practice it regularly.
Learning a new language while being time constrained is stressful and not fun. Since the assignments rapidly increase in their difficulty, it will be to your advantage to learn Go as quickly as possible and to learn it well. The posted Go resources are a great starting point, but reading is no substitute for practice, bug, debug, practice, practice, bug, coffee, debug, practice, Do not skimp on software engineering.
Distributed systems are hard. They are hard to understand, to build, to debug, to run, to trace, to document, etc.

Do not make your life any more difficult. Use best practices from software engineering to help you in this course. Write unit and integration tests, use version control, document your code with comments, write small prototypes, refactor your code, make your code readable and easy to run and debug. If you fail to follow best practices, they will come back to bite you later on.

Unfortunately, this course will not explicitly teach you these best practices, but you probably took a course that introduced you to these concepts. If you have any questions, just ask us on Piazza. Choose your teammates, wisely. Some assignments will depend critically on your ability to work effectively with one other student. You are responsible for resolving personal and technical differences among teammates on your own.
CSCI 4510/6510 - Distributed Systems and Algorithms - Fall 12222
Let us know as early as possible if you have team concerns, before they turn into crises. Reach out for success. This is intended to be a challenging fourth year course, but that does not mean that you have to work through it on your own! The course piazza should be your first stop for all technical questions.

The course has specific office hours see top of page , but I and the TAs are flexible. Send any of us an email to schedule a time to discuss the course, the assignments, etc. University students often encounter setbacks from time to time that can impact academic performance. Discuss your situation with us or an academic advisor as early as possible. For help in addressing mental or physical health concerns, including seeing a UBC counselor or doctor, visit this link. UBC has a detailed policy regarding academic integrity.
You must familiarize yourself with this policy. Many of the materials used in this course are derived from CMU's Distributed Systems course from Spring , and are used with permission from the content authors. Course description Leslie Lamport , a computer scientist who won the ACM Turing Award, gave the following definition of a distributed system: A distributed system is one in which the failure of a computer you didn't even know existed can render your own computer unusable. Textbooks There are three optional books for this course: Go Programming Language Programming in Go Distributed Systems: Principles and Paradigms 2nd Edition Although there are many tutorials introducing Go and the online Go documentation is well developed, some of you may find the first two books on the list helpful for a step-by-step introduction to Go.
Communication Use the course Piazza for all course-related communication. Course-level learning goals The course will provide an opportunity for students to understand key principles in designing and implementing distributed systems reason about problems that involve distributed components become familiar with important techniques for solving problems that arise in distributed contexts build distributed system prototypes using the Go programming language.
Go resources In this course we will exclusively use the Go programming language for all course work. Schedule a work in progress Sep 6 Thu. Course overview, assignment 1 review [ slides ] Read through Go resources prior to class, and practice as much Go as you can.
