Re: UNSW chit chat thread 2017

Question, how do I see a book's "Call Number" hen looking in the UNSW Library website?

Next to "Available at" or in the "Get It" tab. In this example, you would go to Level 7 of the Main Library, and find the shelf row with 621.



Note there is also the High Use Collection section of the Main Library, and the Law Library. Different locations for different books.

Why do the labs have to be partner work for COMP1511? I can finish it all on my own in about 10 minutes right now sob

What should I expect in the ENGG1000 impromptu design reflection task?

I appreciate that it's trying to get you used to working with other people, but when the exercise doesn't require thinking and has a 4 line solution, I don't see how it's much of "working together" and not just "one person does all the (1 min of) work"

It's meant to be a complete beginner course that assumes 0 knowledge of programming

I get that, and I don't want to hinder my partner's learning - that's something that's important to me. However, the fact that these exercises are graded and contribute to a part of my final mark (albeit a small part), means that I don't intend on submitting anything that isn't as perfect as it can be, which, largely due to the wide gap of experience could often end up being mostly my work, if not all.

can you choose partners?


When I did Higher Computing 1, I became partners with someone who already knew programming - and to consider your last point, the only reason that the stuff we submitted together was mostly his work was because I was still learning coding style, and his stuff was often neater

but mine was better commented, so I'd put in the comments, and he'd put in the style


With that said, we both did the assignments and labs separately, and then when it came to submit, we'd just combine ours

Hard to choose when it's the first lab and half the people are going around "hey how many languages do you know", then you watch them proceed to open up Python IDLE and write a program that infinite loops "hey" and act like they're a coding ninja. /rant

Seriously though, it's incredibly hard to judge someone's knowledge in the first lab - on a side note my lab at least didn't get to choose- basically was who you sat next to. Hopefully they're not a deadweight

Sad thing is I'm not even joking - a friend pm'd me from a his lab (I think) at the same time reporting similar.

For those who've studied computer science the whole way (I'm a EE student so won't get to experience their 'development'), do these people exist the whole way through CS (all the way to Advanced Operating Systems lol)? Or are they quickly weeded out or become more "normal"
