Instructor: Hal Perkins (perkins[at]cs – but please use csep501-staff[at]cs for mail)

Teaching Assistant: Aragorn Crozier. We will also have help from the TAs for the related CSE 401 and CSE M 501 compiler courses.

Contact Info: Please use the message board (link at the top of this page) whenever possible. The answer to your question is likely to be helpful to others in the class and, by using the discussion board, it will be available to them as well. Feel free to use private messages on the discussion board for questions that contain detailed code or should not be shared with the rest of the class. For other questions, including unexpected emergencies or other personal circumstances, please send mail to csep501-staff[at]cs. That will help us keep track of things that need further followup from the course staff to better help you.


Lectures: Tue. 6:30-9:20 pm in CSE2 G10. Attendance is expected, but lectures will be recorded and available via panopto on Canvas for review and study. Lecture slides and other items will be posted on the course calendars here, generally by the evening before each class.

Although lectures will be recorded, this class is not a distance-learning or hybrid class. Recordings are intended for review, or to help when unavoidable absences (illness, family or work obligations) occur, not to replace class attendance. You should plan to attend class regularly.

Office Hours: Time(s) and location(s) to be announced. Times and locations will be posted on the main course calendar here. Zoom links are on the course canvas calendar page.
