- assign5 Released! Saturday July 29 by Joel Assignment 5 has been posted in the assignments dropdown. It is meant to reinforce the topics of assembly translation, reverse engineering, and trust and privacy. The backstory: you have been hired as a security expert for Stanford Bank (a fictional on-campus bank). They need you to investigate reports of infiltration and security issues and replicate the issues so that they can fix them. There are three parts to this assignment, and each one will have you investigate supposed vulnerabilities and assess the risks the bank faces. These problems are like C/assembly "puzzles" to solve, and we hope you enjoy solving them and exploring this material as much as we enjoyed creating them! The assignment is due Sunday Aug 6th at 11:59PM PT. You can find more details on the assignment page. We strongly recommend getting started early on this assignment! Goodluck everyone!
- assign4 Released! Sat Aug 22 by Joel
Assignment 4 has been posted on the assignments page. It is meant to reinforce the topic of generics, disclosure and partiality,
void *pointers and function pointers, with exercises ranging from implementing your own version of the
lscommand to implementing your own version of the
sortcommand. We hope you have fun with it! The assignment is due Sun 7/30 at 11:59PM PT. You can find more details on the assignment page.
- assign3 Released! Sat July 15 by Joel Assignment 3 has been posted on the assignments page. It is meant to reinforce the topic of pointers, arrays and heap allocation, with exercises ranging from implementing a convenient version of a C file I/O function to implementing your own versions of the Unix "tail" and "uniq" commands. We hope you have fun with it! The assignment is due Wed 5/3 at 11:59PM PT. You can find more details on the assignment page.
assign2 Released! Fri July 7th by Adam & Joel Assignment 2 has been posted on the assignments page. It is meant to reinforce the topic of C Strings and thorough documentation, with exercises ranging from implementing tools to display environment variables to implementing your own version of the Unix "which" command. We hope you have fun with it! The assignment has a hard deadline of Sunday, July 16th at 11:59PM PT. Note that we've also updated the codecheck tool to now check for indentation issues. Starting with the next assignment, part of your style grade will be dependent on having no code issues when run through the
codechecktool, so make sure to try it out! You can find more details on the assignment page.
assign0 Grades Released Fri July 7th by Adam & Joel Assignment 0 grades have been posted to the Gradebook page, along with style feedback for the assignments. The quartiles of scores on the functionality portion of the assignment were as follows (/26): 1st quartile = 24, second quartile = 25, third quartile = 26. Way to go! Remember, always reach out if your struggling or stuck. We're here to help!
assign1 Released! Fri July 7th by Joel Assignment 1 has been posted on the assignments page. It is meant to reinforce the topics of bits, bitwise operators, and integer representations, with exercises ranging from implementing the core "saturated arithmetic" algorithm to a bit-level cell simulation to understanding the effects of integer representations on real-world software. We hope you have fun with it! The assignment is due Friday 7/7 at 11:59PM PDT. You can find more details on the assignment page.
As you start working, we want to include a reminder about the course style guide; it contains an in-depth reference about how to ensure your programs have great style! We have also added a new
codechecktool to this assignment - check out the spec for more information. Additionally, through TA helper hours and the discussion forum, our focus will be on supporting you so that you can track down your own bugs. Please ask us how to best use tools (like the brand-new GDB!), what strategies to consider, and advice about how to improve your debugging process or track down your bug. Also, please make sure to provide as much information as possible at office hours so that we can help you as best as we can! Goodluck!
Lab Assignments PostedMon. April 10 by Adam We have posted lab assignments - you can view your assignment from the "labs" dropdown in the top toolbar. We did our best to assign everyone to one of their top choices. On this form, if you'd like, you can also join a different lab with space available. Unfortunately, if a lab is full, we are not able to accommodate additional students at this time, but check back later, as enrollments may shift over time.
Labs start Wed., and this week your lab leader will introduce themselves and explain everything about lab and what it's all about. You can find more information about labs and lab policies on the course information page. We'll see you in lab this week in Gates 100!
