Course Content

All of the main content of the course will be posted below. This will included required and optional readings, and slides and examples from lectures. I will often post an initial version of an example before lecture so that you can follow along more easily, then post the updated version after class.


Hasklets, project milestones, and other assignments will be submitted through Canvas. You will also be submitting feedback for your classmates’ Hasklets and project milestones. These will be posted as assignments in Canvas.

All deadlines are at 5pm unless otherwise noted.

There are also overview pages describing two of the main kinds of deliverables in the course:

Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

Accommodations for students with disabilities are determined and approved by Disability Access Services (DAS). If you, as a student, believe you are eligible for accommodations but have not obtained approval please contact DAS immediately at 541-737-4098 or at http://ds.oregonstate.edu. DAS notifies students and faculty members of approved academic accommodations and coordinates implementation of those accommodations. While not required, students and faculty members are encouraged to discuss details of the implementation of individual accommodations.

Reach Out for Success

University students encounter setbacks from time to time. If you encounter difficulties and need assistance, it’s important to reach out. Consider discussing the situation with an instructor or academic advisor. Learn about resources that assist with wellness and academic success at http://oregonstate.edu/ReachOut. If you are in immediate crisis, please contact the Crisis Text Line by texting OREGON to 741-741 or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
