Earlier today, we sent out an email announcement to everyone in the class, welcoming them to CS106B. If you did not receive this email but were expecting to, please confirm your enrollment status on Axess. We have replicated a summary of some of the action items of the email announcement here. Please make sure to work through this list of to-do items before the first day of class:
- Read the course syllabus.
- Join the CS106B Ed Discussion Forum. This is where we’ll post weekly announcements and important updates for the course. Additionally, you will be able to use this forum to ask questions and have discussions with course staff and your fellow students.
- Read the guide linked in C++ Survey and fill out the associated questions so we can find out what you’re interested in reviewing about core programming concepts in C++.
- Get started on Assignment 0! Due on Friday, June 25, this assignment will help us get to know you and will introduce you to some of the tools we’ll be using in the course.
- Discussion sections are an important part of CS106B, and section sign-ups will open on Thursday. You’ll be able to rank section time preferences on the CS198 website from Thursday at 5pm until Sunday at 5pm. Section assignments will be made and announced by next Wednesday morning, so keep an eye out for an email from the CS198 coordinators then.
- Our first class will be on Monday, June 21 from 11:30am-12:30pm. Go to Canvas to find the Zoom info.
- Keep an eye on the course website (where you are at right now), our central hub for lectures, assignments, and other resources.
Computer science is a tool that allows us to make constructive and powerful contributions to the world, and we hope to help unlock those opportunities for you through this course. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions. We're looking forward to meeting you all in lecture on Monday!
