(Note: In autumn 2020, due to the coronavirus, there are changes in course arrangements, see here for details: https://moodle.lut.fi/course/view.php?id=1875) Contact session are weekly and set the stage for the week's exercises and design work. During the contact sessions the environment for doing the week's assignment is constructed so work on the actual assignment can be continued at home (or after lectures in the labs). Typically the completion time for an assignment is a week, sometimes a larger assignment is assigned for two weeks. Material provided is targeted at the LAB lab machines (Windows), but all major three platforms, Windows, MacOS and Linux, are supported. It is recommended for the students to bring their own device, but there are also exercises for which the needed tools are only available in the lab machines. Attendance to the contact sessions is _highly_ recommended unless the student's previous technical experience (including programming) is already extensive.
In addition to the classroom and Reppu the SQL platforms needed to complete the assignment can be seen as environments the students study in. The building of these platforms is done by the students themselves, they are not provided are ready made installations.
