Introduction to
Data Management

πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹ Welcome πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹! We are very excited to have you here; please get to know us at the staff info page and get to know the course at the syllabus.

It is very important to us that you succeed in CSE 344! In addition to lectures and sections, there are several ways to ask questions or engage with the teaching staff.

  • Visit office hours! This is the best place to get detailed, hands-on debugging help and to work with other students.

  • Request a 1-on-1! If you feel like you need extra time, can't make it to office hours, or want to discuss something privately, please request a 1-on-1 with us.

  • Make a public post about course content on the Ed message board, where they benefit the whole class. This also allows other students to answer your question, which may yield a faster response than emailing only the staff. This is the best way of asking questions about class-related topics.

  • Make a private post to just the course staff using the Ed message board or the staff email alias. This is a good way to ask questions or discuss issues privately.

  • Send anonymous feedback to the instructor. She will share the issue with others only as appropriate, but will not be able to reply to you without addressing the entire class.
