Can I get a permission code?
Permission codes are given in exceptional cases only. Having good grades is not enough to get a permission code and COMP1600 is not equivalent to COMP2620.
If you believe that your case is exceptional, then apply for a permission code here.
If you have already submitted a permission code request form for COMP3620/6320, you will need to be patient while we assess and process your request. This may take up to 10 business days. Please do not send multiple/duplicate emails or forms.
I will not be providing a decision on requests sent to me directly.
What is git? Do I have to use it?
Git is a version control system (VCS). You probably have used a VCS in the past, for instance, mercurial and subversion. The goal of a VCS is to manage and keep track of different versions of your files. In this class, we will use git for assignments meaning that the assignment will be published as a git repository and you will turn in your assignment by committing changes to a copy of the assignment repository.
If you have never used git before or want to learn more about git, visit the resources/git page.
