Hands-ons should be submitted via submit site. If you are having trouble accessing that site, please email 6.033-web@mit.edu.


The hands-ons are short, low-stress (we hope) assignments designed to reinforce your understanding of some of the abstract concepts tested in lecture.

  1. DNS
  2. UNIX
  3. Valgrind
  4. MapReduce
  5. Traceroute
  6. TCP
  7. Logging
  8. Databases
  9. Buffer overrun
