Note: Most of the content is still from Fall 2021 and will be updated once Fall 2022 shapes up.
On this is an online class, lectures are a combination of slides, short videos – and required reading plus self-guided exercises. We will aim to upload the lecture slides weekely.

We offer two types of office hours. The first type is open with an open door where you can walk in and out, attend every week, or never—as you see fit. The second type are individual one-on-one office hours that fifteen minutes each, and which you book via the calendly link above. We expect that you limit your use of these to two per term. The booking system only allows one week out so please be considerate of your fellow students. Under genuinely exceptional circumstances, additional visits can be scheduled on demand. (Note that the Zoom links above differ per time slot. Make sure you pick the correct one.)
The same table is at syllabus/overview. For online office hours, links for the sessions will be emailed via compass2g announcement emails.
The following dates have been reserved (but are as always subject to change):
|Quiz||First Date||Laste Date||Late||Weeks Covered|
|Quiz 1 (Shell)||Thu, Sep 08||Sat, Sep 10||Sun, Sep 11||Weeks 1 and 2|
|Quiz 2 (Git,Md,SQL)||Thu, Sep 22||Sat, Sep 24||Sun, Sep 25||Weeks 3 and 4|
|Quiz 3 (R,RStudio)||Thu, Oct 06||Sat, Oct 08||Sun, Oct 09||Weeks 5 and 6|
|Quiz 4 (AdvancedR)||Thu, Oct 20||Sat, Oct 22||Sun, Oct 23||Weeks 7 and 8|
|Quiz 5 (Visualize)||Thu, Nov 03||Sat, Nov 05||Sun, Nov 06||Weeks 9 and 10|
|Quiz 6 (RPkg,Scr.)||Wed, Nov 16||Fri, Nov 18||Sat, Nov 19||Weeks 11 and 12|
Quizzes follow the bi-weekly schedule of the homework, and cover the same (typically two week) set of lectures, and are also not cumulative. You can schedule your exam time within these windows via the PrairieTest site. Each exam will be a session of 50 minutes. These are in-person exams.
Under exceptional circumstance, accomodations may be made by course staff upon written request (also see email etiquette) with proof of exceptional circumstances to allow for online exams for fully-remote students not residing in Urbana-Champaign for the full length of term. Again, proof of such cirumstances will be required as this must be need-based and is not an elective choice for Urbana-Champaign based students who are expected to test at the CBTF facility in person. Requesting online testing when you were able to attend the CBTF in person may be treated an academic integrity violation with its full consequences.
We aim to have a homework each other week prior to the PrairieTest quiz.
|Homework 1 (Shell) – Week 2||Thu, Sep 1 @ noon||Thu, Sep 8 @ noon|

Homeworks are generally released at noon on a Thursday, and are due at noon the following Thursday (which the exception of the last one).
For Fall 2020, group presentations will likely be recorded Zoom videos. More details will be forthcoming– but the general idea is to have five minutes per team along with five slides per team. Both limits are hard. Teams are expected to have presentation-ready slides in the RStudio Cloud environment (Markdown presentation).
The overall deadline for the group projects will be in around the end of classes / end of term and likely by towards the middle of December.
