Notes and solutions to this week’s tutorials are now available online; I’ve also put up next week’s exercises. These are about XML and XPath, using the xmllint command-line tool to analyse XML documents and execute XPath queries.
One-day conference for women students of Computing and related subjects
We’re proud to be hosting the colloquium at Edinburgh this year.
The aims of the event are:
To provide a forum for women undergraduate and masters students to share their ideas and network;
To provide a stimulating series of talks from women in computing, both from academia and industry;
To provide both formal (talks) and informal (networking) advice to undergraduate women about careers in computing from a female perspective.
There are poster competitions for women students at all levels of study. Everyone with a poster accepted for the meeting is eligible for travel funding to attend, and there are additional cash prizes from industry sponsors.
Now that this week’s tutorials are over, I have posted solutions and notes on all the exercises to the course web pages. Click on the “Notes” field in the table of tutorials.
These notes are in much the same style as the solutions given to the exercises at the back of the tutorial sheets: they aren’t exactly “model” answers; rather, they outline some possible solutions and comment on where there might be trade-offs between alternatives.
