1) A reminder that the mid-term exam will be held on Monday, 25th October in our regular lecture time. The exam will open at 09 :30 and close at 10:40. The Moodle link for the Inspera exam is HERE . The exam link is also available via the course Moodle page. Inspera will automatically submit your answers when the exam closes in case you haven't finished your attempt. We strongly recommend that you download a copy of any resources that you may need from the course webpage to your computer. If all 460+ of you access the WebCMS3 server at the same time, it may be slow to respond. If you have any questions for us, you can join the Zoom link HERE (password: 7empest) and type your question in the chat. Do not turn on your microphone. Good luck everyone and may the force be with you.
2) There will be no content covered on Monday. In the lecture on Wednesday (27/10) we will commence our journey into the network layer . I will have the slides ready by Monday.

4) Special assignment specific consultations will run every week from Week 7 to Week 10. There are dedicated sessions for C, Java and Python. You are encouraged to avail of these sessions if you need help. Note that, the purpose of this session is to provide general help and NOT for tutors to debug your code. The schedule is on the assignment page.
