CS 394 FAQ
How to I get access to the shared documents?
See these instructions.
Why did you return my email?
There are 3 rules for CS 394 emails:
- To: my Northwestern email address
- Subject: starts with "CS 394" and your team name
- CC: includes the entire team
The first and second rules are so I can find and file your emails.
The third rule is so everyone knows you emailed me, I know everyone knows, and everyone sees my reply.
Note: if you create a Google email group for team, don't forget to add me! Otherwise my reply-all will bounce.
Emails that fail to do the above will be returned for repair.
The only exception to the CC rule is when there's some personal or inter-personal issue that you don't want the team to know about. These are very rare.
If you ask a really good question, I'm likely to tell you to re-ask it in Piazza.
Where did those team names come from?
In fall, the clients for CS 394 come from the MPD2 program. Those students were traditionally organized into 6 teams: Blue, Green, Orange, Purple, Red, and Yellow. For simplicity, CS 394 teams are given the same names as their clients.
I have no idea where the names came from in MPD2.
