Staff: The Help Schedule summarizes all the times and locations at which staff members are available for help during the week. This summary includes my office hours, TA/Assistant consulting hours (when they help debug programs online or in the Lab - ICS 189), and help sessions (typically one hour each evening) relating to general course material, lecture questions, etc. (but not indvidual help debugging programs).
Online: You may also post questions (and answer questions, and read answers to posted questions) using the academic.cs.15-200pattis bboard. Staff members and I will read this bboard daily and post answers to whatever questions are asked (and left unanswered by other students). This forum is appropriate for questions relevant to all the students in class; use direct e-mail to your instructor for questions of a more individual nature. In past semesters, this bboard has seen a tremendous amount of traffic: course material has been clarified, questions have been asked and answered, and many interesting discussions have ensued. I recommend that your read this bboard daily. Click here for help on Bboards at CMU.
Also remember to read the Announcements link daily, on the course web; I tend to post information here, rather than via email.

It is well known (but little appreciated) fact that consistent attendence of lectures/sections is strongly correlated with good course performance; therefore, I expect all my students to attend classes regularly. Plan on arriving punctually -I make important announcements at the start of each class- paying attention, and treating your classmates with respect.
If you cannot attend a class in your assigned section, please attend that class in any of the other sections that I teach (although attending a different section should be the exception, not the rule). If you do miss a class, your first point of contact should be other students who attended the class (or the CA for your section, but not me) to determine what you missed and how you can catch up (see the course Web too).
On days scheduled for tests, you must attend your assigned section, unless you have made prior special arrangements with me. Seats (especially those in front of working computers) are sometimes at a premium.
