[Mon, 31 Jan 2011] Submit and Grades Servers Set Up
I have set up the submit server for submitting the assignments, and the grades server for reporting the grades: Submit server, Grades server. Note that the submit server only accepts ".zip" files, so you will have to convert your submission files (txt or pdf) into zip archives.
[Fri, 28 Jan 2011] Audio recording for Jan 25 Lecture
I have posted the audio recording for the Jan 25 lecture. More details
[Fri, 28 Jan 2011] Schedule for next 3 classes
We will keep the reading assignment for Tuesday's class (Feb 1) as is (i.e., XML paper). The critiques are due by 8am that morning. We will likely have to cut short some discussion to make up for the cancelled class, and make up some of the individual topics later on. I will post more details for the next class, including thoughts on the required reading paper, in a couple of days.
[Fri, 28 Jan 2011] CMSC 424 Lecture Slides
Instead of Spring 2010 424 slides, the slides from the previous year maybe better for reference, since they are consolidated by subject: E/R and Relational Models, SQL + Relational Algebra, Normalization etc.
[Thu, 27 Jan 2011] SQL Assignment Posted
I have posted the SQL assignment. See the details at the "assignments" tab. Any questions about the assignment should be asked in the Forum. More details
