This schedule is approximate and we may need to move topics around based on how fast we can cover material, feedback from the class, etc. It is almost guaranteed that we will not follow it exactly. Do not plan major events (trips, weddings, proving P=NP, etc.) based on this schedule. If you need to verify whether some date is OK, check with me.

Notes:
* Unqualified numbers in the material due column refer to sections
  in the textbook; section x.0 refers to the text that begins chapter x.  
  Note that the last two sections of each chapter typically are a
  summary and a list of references (and thus short).   
* O8(...) and P(...) denote material in the Oracle8 and PostgreSQL
  books, respectively; otherwise, the section numbers refer to the
  FCDB textbook.  If you're using other books as references, try to
  identify and read the equivalent parts.  Ask me for help if needed.
* Material within square brackets ([..]) is recommended, but not required
* PHW = programming homework
* HW = other homework
* Q = quiz
* PR = Project Report
* Project demos are to be scheduled for a 1-hour timeslot on the 13th
  of December, by arrangement with the instructor.  If no
  suitable time can be found on these dates, students can schedule the
  demo for any *earlier* date, also by arrangement with the
  instructor.
