19/6/2020: Lecture videos

The links to the lecture on 2D arrays (optional) and the Zoom session (about Assig 10 and an example program using arrays) are now on the Schedule page.
There are no more lectures, though I may post some videos of reviews of some past exam questions relevant to Assig 10.

19/6/2020: All Labs/HeleDesks/Workshops are finished.

No labs today!

11/6/2020: Assignment 9 EarthquakeAnalyser: data error

The earthquake-data.txt file had an error in it, which might cause your program problems.
We have fixed the version in the zip file (so it's OK if you downloaded after 12:40 Thurs), and also put a link to the fixed version on the assignment page.
