Getting Help and Class Discussion

We will be using Piazza for class discussion and getting help. The system is highly catered to getting you help fast and efficiently from classmates and myself. Rather than emailing questions to me, I encourage you to post your questions on Piazza. If you do not get a response within a day or two on Piazza, please send mail to carterjl@cs.unc.edu. But try Piazza first. .

Before posing a question, please check if this question has been asked before. This will reduce post clutter and reduce our burden. Repeat questions will be ignored by the instructors.

Piazza allows anyone to respond. So if you see a question that you think you can respond to, please do so, as that will reduce our burden and help you "teach" your fellow students.

This will be a form of class participation that will be noted when I allocate my fudge points!

If you have any problems or feedback for the developers, email team@piazza.com.
