Should I take this class?

If you want to learn how the Internet and its applications work, you should take this class. Note, however, that it is not an easy class. There will be four programming assignments, weekly homework, a midterm and a final. All programming is done in C/C++, so make sure you are comfortable with these languages. Projects will take between 10 and 50 hours to complete.

Email me with questions.
