Hey! We are looking for a distributed computing (java) enthusiast to join an interesting side project. It is about building a distributed data processing cluster composed of many client computers, each of them working on solving a small portion of a large problem (somewhat similar to the distributed system used for alien hunting by SETI@Home project). Users contributing their computer resources get rewarded (financially or with karma points, TBD). What needs to be developed is a mechanism for distributing the portions of the problem between many client computers, including: - task queue management (assignment based on client computer performance metrics and time dedicated to problem solving) - algorithms need to be developed. - communication between the server and client computers; - secure data exchange (data encryption, etc) - needs to be thought through and implemented; - assignment of rewards to users contributing computing resources. If you feel this is for you - PM or drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
