Hi all, As discussed in the last lecture, there are past exam papers (plus an additional set of sample questions) on the LMS, under "Previous exams". The most recent papers are the best guide to what you can expect - the unit content does change sligh...

Hi everyone, I was just wondering if it would be possible to get some 'model answers' released for the written exercise we submitted in Week 7? The feedback I received helped me to understand why some of my answers were wrong, but I'm still not sure w...

Hi all, Our facilitators, Santiago and Alvaro, have unfortunately both been unwell and won't be available to run the labs today in person. However, they have offered to run them online - check the lab channels for details. There's a worksheet availabl...

Dear CITS5501 students, I have had to make a change to the exam date. It appears more than half the class also have an exam on 9th June (CITS5508, Machine Learning) and 10th June (CITS5504, Data Warehousing), so the department has asked me to shift ...

Hi all - I've made revisions to the project spec to clarify what is needed -- make sure you work off the most up-to-date version, which is at https assessment project . The changes made were I added a subsection "Documenting a...

Hi all, I'm assured that refurbishments to 1.24 should be done by the end of tomorrow, so next week's lecture should be back in that room. (But as mentioned, I'll stream as well.) If there are any problems, I should know by Monday morning and can advi...

Just a reminder that we've shifted to face-to-face lab workshops. The following session - Wednesday, 12 noon 2 pm, in CSSE lab 2.05 will ONLY be face-to-face. It's too difficult for facilitators to give a fair amount of attention to both face-to-face...

I'm afraid I don't know. If the text is not visible, then I have to assume it's not. You can definitely revise text before submitting, but I don't know how you can view it after submitting. Did you keep a record of what you wrote? Cheers Arran ANONYM...

Hi Arran, about the written exercise, it says "The string must have no leading zeroes - that is, the first character after the "0x" must be either a digit from '1' to '9', or a letter from 'a' to 'f'." Just for clarity, how the String s represent "0"?...
