During my stay at IMDEA Networks, I have remarked that the terms “distributed computing” sounded like dark magic to some of my fellow young researchers. In this talk, I try to demystify both the theory and practice of this discipline, and attempt to explain some of its basic concepts and main challenges, as well as to highlight the connections with other fields of study.
