Two last tasks for 5150
Good luck finishing up your projects!
Presentation Scoring and Room Information
The room information is in the Google document that you used to sign up for a presentation time slot. Also I added some information on the assignments page about how we will be scoring the presentations.
CMS Available and Survey
CMS is turned on for 5150 now, and that is how you should submit any materials from now on. If you noticed any problems, please email the course staff. In other news, the surveys are canceled. Click on the Surveys link to see what has replaced them.
TA Assignments and Presentation Sign-up
Please see the assignments page for information regarding who your primary TA is and how to sign up for presentation time slots. As usual, email the course staff if you have any questions.
Because of the large size of this year's 5150 class, we have a second TA. (See details below.) Teams will be assigned a primary TA who you should contact first for most class-related questions. If you prefer working with one or the other, let me know.
Let us know about your groups!
If my class spreadsheet is approximately accurate, I have not heard from most of you regarding team formation (either a Team Formed note or a Help Me Find a Team note). The deadline for the feasibility study is only three weeks away, so you should get your teams and projects settled soon.
More project info availableI just posted more details in the project section of the website. Also there are a few more project suggestions. Important dates (or date ranges for the presentations) will be available before lecture tomorrow.
Team finding meet-up
For those of you looking for a project team, I recommend meeting during the discussion time slot at 7:30 this evening (Aug. 27th). The regular lecture room is open and available according to the registrar. You are welcome to self-organize however you like, but here is a suggestion:
(Also give Piazza a try.)
Piazza for CS 5150 exists
By popular request I activated Piazza for CS 5150. Piazza is completely new to me, so feel free to let me know about things I should do with it.
The website is alive
Sorry it took so long. Right now there are just a few project suggestions. More suggestions and the rest of the content will be coming soon.
