I just uploaded my GDCE 2016 talk on deterministic simulation. It’s not rocket science, but probably useful especially for beginning network coders. You can find it in the talks section. I even added a few bonus slides which I had to cut from the conference version for time reasons.
There is also a video of the actual talk in the GDC vault but you cannot access it without a paid subscription (which you also get with any GDC or GDCE conference ticket).
