distributed systems readings

#Distributed System Course List


  • Cornell CS 614 - Advanced Course in Computer Systems - Ken Birman teaches this course. The readings cover more distributed systems research than is typical (which I am in favour of!). In fact, there's barely anything on traditional internal OS topics like filesystems or memory management. There's some worthwhile commentary at the bottom of the page.

  • Princeton COS 518 - Advanced Operating Systems - short and snappy reading list of two papers per topic, covering some interesting stuff like buffering inside the operating system, and L4.

Explain Mocha's testing framework - describe(), it() and before()/etc hooks
View mocha-guide-to-testing.js
// # Mocha Guide to Testing
// Objective is to explain describe(), it(), and before()/etc hooks
// 1. `describe()` is merely for grouping, which you can nest as deep
// 2. `it()` is a test case
// 3. `before()`, `beforeEach()`, `after()`, `afterEach()` are hooks to run
// before/after first/each it() or describe().
// Which means, `before()` is run before first it()/describe()
