Due by 11:59.59pm Friday, September 01
or ASAP for late enrollees
Read through the course syllabus. We should have gone over most of this in class on Monday, but I want you to be sure that you've all seen it. Make a note of any questions about this that you have and submit them with part 2 or bring them up in class or at office hours.
Now that you have read the syllabus, you are responsible for the contents therein. This is where assignments will be posted and readings made. I'm not a big fan of BlackBoard, but I'll try to keep your grades posted there. Let me know ASAP if either service becomes unavailable.
For discussions, we will be using Piazza. Go to https://piazza.com/oberlin/fall2017/csci241 and sign up.
Please post questions to this site, as chances are good that if you have a question, someone else in the class does so as well. You can post anonymously to your classmates, if you prefer, though I will be able to see your identity.
Post an introduction to yourself in the other folder Include who you are, why you are taking the class, a picture of yourself, and something interesting that makes you different from other people.
There are lots of you enrolled in the class this semester. We'll be using iClickers to foster class discussion and the like. You need to go to the Blackboard page for this class and register your clicker. Do so, and bring it to class on Friday.
We will also be using Github for some of the assignments. Please create an account on this site using your @oberlin.edu email if you haven't already done so.
It seems that every semester Google decides some portion of the emails from our grader account (firstname.lastname@example.org) is marked as spam. You can prevent this by creating a filter rule. Do a search for "from:email@example.com", click on the downward triangle at the right of the search box, click on "Create filter with this search" in the bottom right, and check the box for "Never send it to Spam".
For this part, I want you to send me an email to my @oberlin.edu account. Include the following:
I have adhered to the Honor Code in this assignment.
That's it! See you in class on Wednesday!
