Prof. Fiebrink's office hours


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.

Tentative precept schedule

Scribe notes

For each Wednesday precept, we’ll ask for two volunteer scribes to take notes for an hour each, then email the notes to Rebecca in doc or txt format by the following Sunday. She’ll post them to the course Wiki, you will be the recipient of immortal gratitude from your classmates and countless others around the world, and you’ll receive extra credit (up to 1/2 of a homework assignment).

We'll post completed scribe notes up in the precept schedule, along with the corresponding precept topic outline.


Please submit Assignments in Blackboard unless the instructions say otherwise. We'll often use Blackboard to give you feedback on your assignments, as well.

  • Assignment 1: due 2/13/10, 11:59pm

We may add resources here later.
