  • April 24th: Office hours this Friday will start slightly later than usual – around 11 or so, due to a last-minute conflict. Sorry about that.
  • April 23rd: As agreed, the quiz on practical applications has been rescheduled for next week. Week after next there will be a quiz on usability.

  • April 16th: Another day, another schedule change. Please notice that our last week of class has been slightly compressed. We will wrap up and review on May 7th, and there won't be a class on May 9th, and no office hours on May 10th. Quiz and final exam schedules are unchanged.
