6.824 is a core graduate subject with lectures, labs, and quizzes. 6.824 is 12 units. 6 EDPs.
Lectures (1.5 hour twice a week)
6.824 will have a mid-term and a final.
There are programming labs due weekly for the first half of the term.
In the second half of the term you'll build a system of your choice, in small groups. You'll also write a research-style paper on that system.
You must write all the code you hand in for the programming assignments, except for code that we give you as part of the assigment. You are not allowed to look at anyone else's solution (and you're not allowed to look at solutions from previous years). You may discuss the assignments with other students, but you may not look at or use each other's code.
