As Keenan mentioned in class, the second component of getting started is downloading the codebase and getting a sample program to run. The codebase for this course is available at https://github.com/nmwsharp/DDGSpring2016.
The README displayed on that page contains some instructions for getting started and running a test program, as well as some other information. If you are an experienced programmer, feel free to ignore the instructions and do as you wish, there’s nothing especially unusual going on here (just get the test program working!).
To verify your success, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) a screenshot of the window displaying the bunny by Jan 21. Don’t forget to include “DDGSpring2016” in the subject line.
There will surely be some hiccups getting started with this code, don’t hesitate to contact me with issues either via email or blog comments. I will also be holding an optional help session next Tuesday (Jan 19) around 5:00 so we can get things sorted out. If you aren’t available at that time and you would like to meet, let me know.
