Projects are released on Thursdays, and are due 1 week and 1 day later on the following Friday, by 11:59pm. Late work is not accepted. We give partial credit for work you have completed — always submit the work you have completed before the due date. If you do not submit the work you were able to get done, we will not be able to give you credit for the work you were able to complete.

Always double check that the work that you submitted was uploaded properly. See here for more information.

Each week, we will announce in Piazza that a project is officially released. Some projects, or parts of projects may be released in advance of the official release date. Work on projects ahead of time at your own risk. These projects are subject to change until the official release announcement in Piazza.
