  • Resources/websites/: add link to new GitHub repo for issues and discussion; please use the (emailed) link to a Google Doc to provide your GitHub id (see yesterday’s announcement at compass2g/blackboard).
  • Noted on pages for lectures 01 and 02 that RStudio Cloud currently has no terminal for us which is a bit of an issue for us. We will keep everyone posted as we learn more. One alternative for Windows users who are comfortable installing software might be git-bash; bash can be added to macOS.

  • Syllabus/Assessment count corrected to six as on the Schedule page.
  • Note added on Syllabus/Assessment that some items may still be in the process of getting finalized.
  • Instructor email on Syllabus/Getting Help page corrected to (i.e. no second hyphen after 430).
