Welcome to 2430.2: Introduction to Programming in C
I'm sorry about the delay with getting the course web site up. ATDP has been having a little problems with the web servers in the office that store these course web sites. When the web site becomes online (which it is, if you are actually reading this :-), you'll be able to access it at both the URL given in your intro letter (http://128.32.250...), as well as a shorter and less numeric URL, courtesy of one of our instructor's personal web server:
This will probably be an easier-to-remember URL. As long as you remember ATDP, your instructors' names, as well as the course number, you'll remember it. :-)
I'm sure by the time you are here reading this, you have already read the introduction letter (click on the link to read it online) from us and are excited about this class! We look forward to this summer as much as you all do as well. As a quick introduction to this course web site, I'll give you a little tour and briefly describe what's the role of this site, and where you can find everything. Basically, any information you will need to find about this class can be found here. (If not, just contact us about it!)
Each class day, the web site will be updated with the plan and materials covered for the day, as well as the homework assigned after the lecture on the day. (The first homework -- assignment #0 -- can be found at the bottom of this page) On the left of the page, you can go to other sections of the site, which you can find information about the class and ourselves, our contact info, a page with links to other online resources, as well as the calendar, as each class day is over the page for the day will be archived and you can always access it through the calendar.
That should cover everything for now, we hope you'll enjoy this course. Have a good end of semester in school, we look forward to this summer with all of you!
Assignment #0: Read the first chapter, "Introduction," of the textbook. If you still don't know what is the course's textbook now, you can go to the about page to look it up. Don't worry too much about the details of everything in this reading, but make sure you at least actually go through the chapter.
