Prof. Fiebrink's office hours

My office hours will be Monday from 1:30-3:30. If I need to reschedule any week, I will post to piazza.

My office is room 408 in the Computer Science building, which is attached to the Friend center. The easiest way to find it is to take the CS building elevator to the 4th floor, then veer left down the hallway.
