Course project reminders:
|Dec 11||In the project, if you are using actors in your implementation, as we suggested you are allowed to add a call to their start method in the predefined file Main.scala (but that should be your only chance to that file).|
|Dec 11||We have updated the file messenger.scala for better performance. Please download it again and replace the old messenger.scala in your project's subdirectory src/main/scala/ with the new one above.|
|Dec 10||As discussed today in class, more information about the final has been posted in Exams section.|
As discussed today in class, we have modified the some of the predefined Scala classes in the project to use more actors.
This will prevent the GUI fron freezing when your won code is running.
Please add the following files: guiGlobals.scala, Main.scala, and messenger.scala to your project's subdirectory src/main/scala/. The first two will replace existing files, the third is new.
The class project has been posted on ICON's dropbox, in the "Project - Part A" folder. It has two sets of deliverable, with different deadlines.
|Nov 6||The teams for the project have been formed. You can find the list in the Contents section of ICON. Please contact your team members are soon as possible so you can get started on the project right away.|
|Oct 24||As announced on Tuesday in class, the course project will be done in teams of 4 people. (Teams of 3 people will be permitted in exceptional cases.)
You are free to team up with anyone you want in the class, regardess of your class section.
Please find partners for your team and let Frank (peng-fu AT uiowa DOT edu) know by this Thursday, Oct 31.
If you do not do that, or send us a list with less than 4 names, you will be grouped with others by us, the instructors.
Your are welcome to use the general forum in the Discussions section of ICON to advertise or look for team partners.
Note that a copy of the Scalacheck library is included in the SBT project in hw4.zip for Homework 4.
If you use ScalaEdit's SBT terminal to develop your solution for the homework,
which is highly recommended, you have nothing to install.
See the Internal Resources section for instruction on how to use SBT in ScalaEdit.

Correction: Frank's office hours for
There is a small typo in the specification of Matrix.apply in
hw2b.scala. The line
given i in [0 .. h-1] and j in [1 .. w-1] should read as
given i in [0 .. h-1] and j in [0 .. w-1].
Sorry for any confusion.
|Sep 25||The last line of the file hw2b.scala, which reads: val m = new Matrix, is there by mistake. You can ignore it.|

Homework 1 is out. It is to be done individually and is due
by 7pm on Thu, Sep 12.
You can download it from the Dropbox section of the ICON site.
One clarification about Homework 1 problems:
You are not allowed to use any Scala library method that essentially trivializes the problem by providing the same or almost the same functionality as the method you are asked to implement. Examples of that would be using the library method drop to implement remove or contains to implement isIn.
All of the list problems can be solved using none of the predefined library functions for lists. Pattern matching and recursion are enough.
Several useful resources on Scala, including a cheat sheet,
can be found in the External Resources section.
More readings on Scala, including a great syntax primer, can be found in the Readings section.

|Aug 28||Everyone registered in this course has an account on the machines in the CS labs (e.g. 301 MLH). You login is the same as your HawkID. The password is however separate. You can set or reset it here.|
