DOPE: Distributed OPerating Environment

November 2003

I did this project with a friend around that time that Grid Computing was getting popular in the mainstream with SETI@Home (in its pre-BOINC avatar).

A Client-Server Java app that used Distributed Computing principles to:
a) Break down a given, computationally intensive task into chunks*
b) Distribute these chunks to clients on the network, favouring those with lower latency
c) Re-assemble the results returned by clients into a single unit
d) Re-send chunks for which result was not received within stipulated time

*Limitations apply: this was not a general-purpose implementation
