Distributed systems: paradigms & models


Here you can find the arguments discussed during lessons, the audio/video files relative to the already given lessons (when available) and, more in general, pointers to support material hosted on the support material web page. Audio/video files are .m4v files. In order to be able to see these files under Windows you need to install quicktime.
