[Advanced Databases]: TeleTOP site ready

Friday, August 11th, 2006, posted by Djoerd Hiemstra

The complete TeleTOP roster is ready. Please note the two extra meetings on Friday 22 September and Friday 27 October. The organisation of the course is such, that there is something for everyone: a little bit of home work, a mini practicum, a small project, a written exam, and quite some talking from my side. It will be hard work and hopefully it is going to be fun. Hope to see you at the lectures.

Project update

Friday, October 14th, 2005, posted by Djoerd Hiemstra
I hope everyone is well on their way with the project. The deadlines for the project are as follows. Send in you prepared presentations no later than 24 October. I will ask the best project A and project B groups to give a short (about 20 minutes with some time for questions) presentation during the lecture of 26 October. The deadline for reports/software is 28 October. Please note that project description in the archive of the TeleTOP site still contained last year’s deadline (19 October 2004), which resulted in some of you being really in a hurry. I am sorry for the inconvenience. The deadlines are as stated above (and in the Roster).
