Lab 1: Hello World CIS 252 h Introduction to Computer Science This lab will introduce you to some of the key tools we will be using in this course. In many labs, you are allowed to work together with a partner. How- ever, this lab must be a solo effort because we’ll be setting up your Unix ac- count. Part 0: Creating an ECS computer account You will need to set up an ECS computer account for this course. This ECS ac- count will be different from your University-wide ITS account.

From your favorite web browser, visit the following link: https://web.ecs.syr.edu/cgi-bin/usercreate 2. Supply the requested information. 3. Within a day, you should receive email to your syr.edu account with a link where you can find your initial password for your ECS account. I MPORTANT NOTE : Depending on which courses you’ve already taken, you may already have an ECS account. If you’re not sure whether you have an account (or if you’ve forgotten your password), you can check with the CIT Help Desk (Link 204, 443-4308). Part 1: Getting set up 1. Find the lab room: CST 1-231 . Be sure to know your ECS ID and pass- word. 2. Find an empty machine and wake it up. 3. Click on Options , choose Session , and then choose GNOME 2.0 . 4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
