How you could have come up with Paxos yourself
The Paxos algorithm is notorious for how difficult it is to understand. I had to learn the Paxos algorithm in my distributed systems class. I even have “implemented” it by translating Leslie Lamport’s TLA+ to Python. But I didn’t understand it until much much later. Now I have a better understanding of Paxos than I used to, I want to explain it to other people.
