Students are expected to be actively involved during class. Assigned readings must be completed *before* the beginning of class as listed in the schedule, as they form the basis for class discussion. A significant amount of each class will be devoted to group discussions of the readings and related course material. All students are expected to contribute to every discussion. Participation also includes actively engaging in lab activities as well as working outside of class time; e.g., visiting office hours.
There will be a number of programming assignments. We'll be clear about
which are individual and which are team. Most will be carried out on
the department's Hadoop cluster, provided by Google.
It goes without saying that the University of Washington & CSE codes of conduct and academic
integrity policies will be strictly enforced in this class.
Late work may be handed in with a penalty of 20% for each day late.
Individual extensions may be granted due to extenuating circumstances on a case-by-case basis in response
to really great sob stories.
Students should see the instructor *well* ahead of time if this is necessary.
