Mehran Sahami Handout #7 CS 106A September 23, 2009 Assignment #1: Email and Karel the Robot Karel problems due: 3:15pm on Friday, October 2nd Email due: 11:59pm on Sunday, October 4th Based on a handout by Eric Roberts Part I Email Over the last twenty years, computer science professionals and students have tended to rely more and more on electronic mail (usually called e-mail for short) for their communications. Since having an e-mail account is of negligible value if you ignore its existence, we will also expect you to read your mail regularly through the quarter and encourage you to use this medium to communicate with the course staff. We will use it to communicate with you, and you should be sure to check your mailbox at least once every two days. If you already have an e-mail account, you will find this part of the assignment should only take you about a few minutes! To get you started on the process of getting an e-mail account, you should follow these instructions: (1) If you already have an electronic mail account (which, for example, you should have if you have gotten a SUNetID) that you use (or intend to use) regularly, you can skip steps 2, 3, and 4, and jump immediately to step 5. (2) If you do not have an email account, you should set-up an account at Stanford. You can get more information about obtaining a SUNetID (which will in turn cause an account to be created for you) at the URL: http://www.stanford.edu/dept/as/mais/applications/sunetid/ (3) Make sure you set up the account early, as it can take up to one full day for new accounts to become active. (4) Using any electronic mail program that you like (for example, Eudora, GMail, or Outlook Express), send a message to me ( sahami@cs.stanford.edu ), the head TA Sarah Spikes ( sdspikes@cs.stanford.edu ), and your section leader. Note that you won't know your section leader's email address until after your first section, which is why we don't make this part of the assignment due until Sunday. The message should include answers to the questions on the next page. Note : Note that none of the items in your email to us are binding (i.e., you can always change which platform you work on). The point of this assignment is just for us to learn a little more about you.
