Some of the best material on distributed systems that I've come across.

It's not an easy course definitely but very comprehensive, a lot of stuff to learn.

Really good, however having to write the assignment in c++ is a downer.

1. Need more tutors to answer the question

Some of the questions in the quiz are badly written and some of us did not understand and tried to ask. And almost no one responds the questions in the "discussion forum" when you reach the end of the course.

2. C++ project assignment

The project claims to use C++, but mixed the C and C++ and doesn't follow C++ best practices. It is very bad for people who have to learn C++ to finish this project since they will get confused by plenty of C code in C++.
