This is the most difficult Georgia Tech course I’ve taken, and that includes CSE6220 Intro To High Performance Computing. I’ll share with you my strategies for a couple of the labs and some general class advice to make it through.Continue reading “Surviving CS7210 Distributed Systems – Paxos Is Tough”
This is going to be a post on my gear and approach to studying for OMSCS.
When I first started OMSCS, and had to open a textbook and take lecture notes for the first time in a long time, I was at a bit of a loss of the best way to organise myself. Back in my undergrad degree, I was strictly a notebook+pencil+highlighter kind of person. These days with my daily commute and frequent work space hopping, carrying around 10lbs of textbooks and notebooks and pencils is not really ideal. I also didn’t really want to accumulate dozens of notebooks and textbooks – physical space is a premium for me.
I’ve just finished my first semester at Georgia Tech, in the amazing OMSCS program. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what courses to take, and thought I’d share my course plans for those in the same boat. I’ve put together a computing systems and machine learning plan.
