Extreme Computing (EXC)

Response to 2016/17 survey feedback for EXC.

We have taken note of the feedback from students in this course survey, and have the following comments in response.

  • More labs are being added about topics other than Hadoop.
  • We're planning to merge distributed systems into extreme computing this year, leading to revised content.
  • This course is primarily about efficiency, so that is where most of the marks are allocated. We will make that explicit at the top of the assignment.
