Contacting us

Use Piazza, a question and answer site for courses. You’ve probably seen it before in other courses. By posting your questions to Piazza, you’ll not only get faster responses from the course staff, but you’ll also be able to get help from other students. We’ll consider your interactions on Piazza as course participation, so good discussions may improve your grade!

To sign up for CS 61 Piazza, visit piazza.com/harvard/fall2013/cs61.

Of course, while you are welcome to discuss general tips and strategies on Piazza and help each other with technical problems, you may not share answers or code. We also encourage you to use Piazza judiciously. Many, if not most, of you are old enough to vote and to drive several-ton death machines on our nation’s roads. That means you’re also old enough to try first to solve problems yourselves (you’ll learn more that way).

Administrative questions, problems with specific lines of code, and anything else too sensitive to post publicly should be marked private (for instructors to see only).

Alternatively, you may send private questions to the staff email list, cs61-staff@seas.harvard.edu.

While we will endeavor to answer emails and posted questions in a timely fashion, we make no guarantees! Plan on responses taking up to 48 hours. This means that you should not expect immediate answers to emails sent or questions posted the night before homework is due!

Office hours

Unless noted otherwise, office hours will be held in the Science Center Computer Lab (Room B-14). We will have regular weekly office hours, starting Monday 9/10. We will occasionally schedule additional office hours. Check either this page or the announcements page for details.

Eddie Kohler says: I have office hours in MD 327. My office hours are MW morning, but I'm often in my office at other times. If the door is open and I'm available, I'm happy to meet. It may be better though to send email to set up a specific time.
