Dear students,

- we have several cases, where students did not include their name and/or matriculation number on the submission, please make sure this information is always present
- if you submit in groups, please make sure, only one student submits your solution
- also, please read each task carefully, i.e. not only the task, but also the instructions on how to submit the task 

learning to read carefully is not only going to save your points on the exercises sheets, but also in the final exam

Concerning the current sheet: for the python task, if you do not receive a server response, but don't know why: try to also encode parameter names and other stuff inside the query.

Cheers,
Nico

A note about plagiarism

Given the feedback from our tutors, I would like to re-iterate my point about plagiarism: if we catch you once, you'll be warned. If we catch you again, you will not be able to take the exam this semester.

Note that taking the exercise solutions from last year is not a great idea. First, some exercises have been changed (and we found that people blindly copied in the old solutions). Second, this is definitely a case for plagiarism. The same applies to copying text from the Web, other students, or books. Note that it also does not help you if you provide the source of the information. All exercises must be done by yourselves.

Finally, we don't have the exercise sheets to keep you or our tutors busy. These are meant as a way for you to familiarize yourselves further with the topics. Naturally, you can try and cheat on them, but it's somewhat pointless: in the end, if you haven't done the exercises, you'll likely have issues in the exam.

Hence, please make sure that you just do the work yourself!

All the tutorials are now assigned, you can find yours on your personal status page. Please remember, that the Monday tutorial only starts on November, 4th. Also, due to the public holiday this week Friday, that tutorial will not happen. Please go to any of the others this week.

Further, thus far only about 40 students have registered for the Python introduction. Note that there will be numerous exercises based on Python during the semester and unless you have already worked with Python, we highly suggest you take the introduction.

Dear students,

As announced in the lecture, Dominik and Nico are going to offer tutorials, covering the basics to get you started with python programming. The tutorials are going to include some tasks for you to solve by programming, so if possible, please bring a laptop and make sure Python (3.7) is installed. If you want, you also already can install and have a look at Pycharm, a full Python IDE, we can recommend and is free for students (https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm).

You can choose the time slot that fits you best:

  • Tue 29th Oct. 10:15, CISPA Lecture Hall
  • Wed 30th Oct. 12:15, CISPA Lecture Hall

You can find the lecture by turning left when entering the CISPA building (pass by the reception desk).

Please use the registration feature in the CMS to sign up for one of the slots. You can find the registrations for the tutorials on your personal page. Given that the lecture hall cannot hold all students, we have limited the capacity per slot to 70 students.

Thank you and we hope to see all of you in the tutorial!

Exercise sheet online and CMS bugs

The exercise is available for download via the CMS. Also, all error messages in the CMS should have disappeared (these were caused by the import of the previous year, which contained all available sheets and importantly, the exam registrations).
