CS 4321 (and 5321): Practicum in Database Systems

CS4321/CS5321 is a practicum course to accompany CS 4320.

The main platform for distributing course material is the Course Management System (CMS). In addition, we will be using Piazza as a forum for student discussion. Therefore, this website is deliberately fairly minimalistic.


Here are the contact details for the course staff:

Office hours start the week of September 1st and the schedule will be posted on Piazza.


The course meets once a week, on Wednesdays 3:35pm-4:25pm, in Phillips 101.
