Lab 9: Distributed Computing
Due: 6:00 PM, Monday, April 13, 2015

This is not really a new lab, just some questions about the readings. It is presented as a lab for consistency. You may work alone or in groups of size 2 or 3 on the questions. Only one submission per group is needed.

Guest Speaker Reactions

Note: this portion must be done individually and is graded separately.

Participate in the discussion of this week's speaker, Jim Teresco, on the speaker blog. To earn full credit, you should make at least 3 comments on this week's post or replies to comments (at least 1 should be a reply, and at least 1 should be posted within the day following the talk). Comments may address any aspect of the speaker's presentation, including how it relates to topics from other parts of the class. You are welcome to start this process during the talk, if you wish. (5 points)

Lecture Assignment Questions

We will usually discuss these questions at the start of class on the lab due date, so no credit can be earned for late submissions of lecture assignment questions.
