Course Description:

Who might be interested in attending:

Each week we will:

Outside Class You Will:

Those of you who have been participating in TechBand
(PLOrk++) seminar this semester are vigorously encouraged
to continue into TeQWire, 'cause we'll continue to build
some of the things we started this semester. New people
are even more vigorously encouraged to join TeQWire, as
I assure you that TechBand is not a prereq.

Reading: Chapters from new book near completion
plus other papers and book chapters.

Writing, Assignments: Individual reports/projects/presentations
on topics of interest. Lots of listening, too.
