Homework 0: on-line survey worth 0 points, "due" Friday January 10
The programming assignments will use Java. We will use Java 7, the most recent version of the language. So if installing Java on your own machine, you can get Java 7 from http://jdk7.java.net/.
We strongly encourage using the Eclipse IDE, though we will not require this. You can download Eclipse for your own machine from http://eclipse.org/downloads; it is also installed on all the lab machines. Some guidance on getting started with Eclipse is included in Homework 1.
The textbook is Data Structures and Algorithm Analysis in Java, Mark Allen Weiss, 3rd Edition, 2011, ISBN: 0132576279. Errata is here. Code from the book is here. We will also do our best to support the 2nd Edition, ISBN: 0321370139. Errata for the 2nd edition is here. Code for the 2nd edition is here. The textbook is also available for 4 hour loan at the Engineering library. The textbook often provides a second explanation for material covered in class.
A Java reference is also strongly recommended. While there are a variety of (more than) sufficient references, we recommend Core Java(TM), Volume I--Fundamentals 9th Edition, Cay S. Horstmann and Gary Cornell, 2002, ISBN: 0137081898.
Here are some interesting, usful, and accessible articles related to the course material. These are optional reading that you may find helpful and enriching.
Acknowledgments: Many of the materials posted here and used in the course have been shared and refined by many other instructors and TAs in previous offerings of CSE373, CSE332, and CSE326. This version of the course was particularly based on previous offerings by Ruth Anderson and Dan Grossman.
