title: CS 495/595 - P2P Information Systems
description: Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems are an exciting, recent development in Internet information systems. In addition to the most common examples of file sharing, P2P systems are also deployed for distributed computation, long-term file storage, chatting and anonymity purposes. This class will review some of the history, social context, demonstrative systems and some of the open issues in P2P. The class will focus heavily on cooperative class programming assignments as well as case studies. At the end of this course, the student will have a broad understanding of the design, deployment and impact of P2P information systems.
