I'd rather do the hands-ons on my own laptop instead of in an
Athena cluster. Can you tell me how to install the packages for
my particular set-up?
We can't support individual student set-ups because they vary
so widely. But, there is a solution! To complete the hands-ons,
you don't have to be physically present in an Athena cluster: you
can access it remotely via
In a terminal, type: ssh
(replace <athena_id> with whatever your Athena ID
is). It will ask for your Athena password, and once you've
entered that, you're now using an Athena machine.
Please specify the due date time of the assignments!
The due date times are written explicitly on the assignments
first critique) and discussed as part of
policy. If you find an assignment without an explicit
due-time, please email us!
It's hard to hear in the back of the class during lecture. Can
you speak up?
We'll do our best to check at the beginning of each class
whether students in the back can hear (without us also destroying
the ears of the people up front). If you can't hear during
lecture, please just raise your hand and let us know.
Alternatively, there are many seats available up front!
