6.824 Spring 2013: Final project

In the second half of the course you'll work on a distributed systems project of your choice in teams of two or three. The goal is to have fun and to explore more advanced topics; you don't have to do novel research.

We'll grade you on how much you got working, how elegant your design is, how well you can explain it, and how interesting and creative your solution is. Time is limited, so try to make sure your goals are reasonable; perhaps set a minimum goal that's definitely achievable and a more ambitious goal if things go well.

Schedule and Deliverables


Here's a list of ideas to get you started thinking -- but you should feel free to pursue your own ideas.
