Outside of lectures and sections, there are a few ways to ask questions or discuss course issues:

  1. Visit office hours! In addition, feel free to stop by any time Katelin is in the office (214) or make an appointment
  2. Post questions about course content to the class discussion board, where they benefit the whole class. If other students can answer your question, you may receive a response more quickly than you would by emailing the course staff.
  3. Email the course staff at cse351-staff at cse.uw.edu (or individually) with any questions or issues you would prefer to discuss privately.
  4. Send me anonymous feedback and I will try to address the issue in class.

Mailing List

All students enrolled in the class have already been subscribed to the course mailing list (cse351a_sp15 at uw.edu). If you'd like to change your mailing list settings or if you have not been subscribed, visit the mailing list info page. The mailing list is low-traffic and we will mostly communicate through the discussion board.

Course Materials

We will assign reading and homework problems from the required textbook, Bryant and O'Hallaron, Computer Systems: A Programmer's Perspective, 2nd edition, ISBN: 978-0-13-610804-7 (Errata). Additionally, you may find a good C programming language reference quite useful. Examples are Kernighan and Ritchie, The C Programming Language, 2nd edition and Harbison and Steele, C: A Reference Manual, 5th edition.

A number of videos on the course content are available from an online version of this course, thanks to Luis Ceze and Gaetano Borriello (as well as Katelin Bailey and Rachel Sobel, as TAs in previous quarters). Viewing these videos is generally optional. They may be useful for reviewing lecture content or use of important tools for lab. We may occasionally assign some videos to supplement topics which we may cover only briefly in lecture.
