I will post general tips and handouts on this page, as well as code examples from class. Please check often to make sure you do not miss any important information.
Lab Feedback and Grades
You will receive feedback and grades for each lab assignment about one week after it is turned in. To view the feedback and grades for your lab assignments, please go to: https://mail.cs.oberlin.edu/ and login with your same username and password as the lab machines. You will see more than one email for the first lab -- they are all the same (the duplicates are due to internal testing of the system).
We are currently working on trying to get these emails to automatically go to your usual @oberlin.edu email address. I will announce when that is working.
- If you aren't sure whether you should start with CSCI 140, CSCI 150, or CSCI 151, please check out this guide!
