Hi everyone! We hope the Excel project is going well! There's been some confusion lately so we just wanted to clarify:

  • Lab and hours times are on the course website

    http://cs.brown.edu/courses/cs002/new_hours.html
  • Monday-Thursday labs are on Gather Town. During your lab time, you can work with peers on the lab and get your lab checked off by a TA.
  • Office hours and Friday lab checkoff hours are on signmeup. During hours there will be a queue on https://signmeup.cs.brown.edu that you can add yourself to. When a TA claims you, you should join their Zoom.
