FAQ

The quiz dates are the following:

Date: June 6th 2013 -First Midterm Exam - Topics: Ruby & TDDDate: July 4th 2013 -Second Midterm Exam - Topics: To be determined

The project proposal deadline date will be the same date as the first midterm which isjune 6th 2013.However, I expect proposals to be deliver as soon as the second week of class.

Why? You may ask. Well, mostly because your first 3-4 submissions will need a lot of revisions and corrections and as you may know your proposal plays a huge part on the score of your project. You don't want to be lose those precious points at the beggining of the course, don't you? ;)
