Welcome! Please note a couple of things as we get started this quarter:

  • The first lecture will meet on Tuesday, April 3. There are no scheduled lab sections, but we will have informal lab meetings, which I expect will begin late this week or early next week, with times and days to be announced. For more information about meeting times of lab meetings, see the Course Reference. For information about lecture material and readings, see the Schedule.
  • I encourage you to spend some time reading through the material on the course web site. It will be updated periodically throughout the quarter, and there will always be an announcement here describing each update. For now, notice the set of links at the top of this (and every) page, leading you to the Course Reference, the Schedule, and the Project Guide, as well as a set of Notes and Examples — mostly emanating from the lectures — that will be posted throughout the quarter.
  • Please note that a warm-up project, Project #0, is due on Wednesday, April 11 at 11:59pm. It's a little bigger than you might think, particularly if you've never used Linux or a command line before, so you're going to want to be sure to get off to an early start on that.
