Lectures on the Google Technology Stack 1: Introduction to PageRank
This is one in a series of posts about the Google Technology Stack – PageRank, MapReduce, and so on – based on a lecture series I’m giving in 2008 and 2009. If you’d like to know more about the series, please see the course syllabus. There is a FriendFeed room for the series here.
