Welcome to cs019! Your official materials use the designator CSCI0190, but that naming and numbering convention was imposed by a very expensive—and hence very deficient—piece of software that Brown purchased.

This year, cs019 has a new instructor and new staff. The resulting course is nothing like its previous incarnations. If you thought the previous version was sublime, you may very well dislike it now (though maybe not); if you didn't like the previous version, you may love this (though, again, maybe not). When in doubt, always read the README....
Having read the README, some of you might wonder whether you already need to know Scheme. Not at all; we teach it to you from scratch. What you can do, if you're looking to prepare for the course, is get back up to speed with your Java, because the first assignment is in Java.
