This course is team-taught by three staff members of the Condor Project:
Tim Cartwright · CS 4265 · cat [@] cs [.] wisc [.] edu
Alan De Smet · CS 4247 · adesmet [@] cs [.] wisc [.] edu
Nick LeRoy · CS 4289 · nleroy [@] cs [.] wisc [.] edu
There are no books to buy for this course. The two reference books that we suggest using are available for free online through the UW library system.
Head over to our resources page for links to the book and lots of links to other scripting resources.
One or more of the instructors will be available on Wednesdays from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in CS 4259 (a conference room on the fourth floor of Unit II). Exception: On Wednesday, July 29th, office hours will be in CS 4331 (a conference room on the fourth floor of Unit III).
You can also make an appointment (by email is probably best) to talk to any of us. We all work full time here in the CS building, so will often be available. Dropping by our offices without an appointment is not guaranteed to work.
We will post slides and homework assignments on their appointed days.
