DNS outage: Extended deadline

We were experiencing some DNS problems earlier this day. Because some of you were unable to download the exercise sheet, we will be extending the deadline for the seventh exercise sheet to noon on Friday (30th of June).

Solutions for Exercise Sheet 5

We have just published the sample solutions for Exercise Sheet 5. You can download them in the materials section. We released the solutions because the pythons exercises might be more difficult for some of you and we want you to be able to study the solutions in detail.

We decided to move the deadline of the fifth exercise sheet to Saturday, June 10th at 23:59. This will give all of you who were busy with the programming two deadline more time to work on the assignments.

To have enough time for the correction the tutorials on June 13th are canceled and June 15th is a public holiday.

The next tutorials will happen in two weeks on June 20th with the discussion of the fifth exercise sheet.

Tutorials on May 30th: Canceled

This week there is no outstanding exercise sheet which needs to be discussed. Therefore, the tutorials this week are canceled. Tutorials will resume normally next week with the discussion of the 4th exercise sheet.

To prepare you for Python-based exercises, next week there will be Python tutorials instead of normal tutorials. You can choose to attend any of the two offered slots at 10:00-12:00 or 16:00 - 18:00. Both Python tutorials will be given by Michael Brengel in the... Read more

To prepare you for Python-based exercises, next week there will be Python tutorials instead of normal tutorials. You can choose to attend any of the two offered slots at 10:00-12:00 or 16:00 - 18:00. Both Python tutorials will be given by Michael Brengel in the CISPA lecture hall (E9 1; ground floor). The exercise sheet that would have been discussed on that date will be discussed in the week after. Due to the lack of interest for the early time slot, the Python tutorial will not be held at 8-10.

Starting from May 23rd, we are back to normal with all three time tutorial time slots (8-10, 10-12 and 16-18). We will, however, merge the two tutorials at Tue 10-12. Students of Jonas' tutorial are supposed to attend Alexandro's tutorial instead (same time; room 015 in E1 3) from then on.
