Why should I study this course?
|Because this is the golden age for distributed systems. |
Almost everything we do involves distributed systems (everything that is Internet based, e.g., Google, e-mail, WhatsApp, TikTok, Telegram, Instagram, Facebook, Dropbox, Amazon, Twitter, Netflix, your bank, cryptocurrencies and blockchains, etc.).
In this course, we will study the mechanisms behind the scenes of these systems, and you will learn how to design such systems yourself.
