Bring Your Laptop! 22 Apr 2016

If you are not an S&T student, this announcement is just for you.

Due to some bad timing1, we weren’t able to procure temporary logins for campus machines. However, we are working on setting up a way for you to access the Internet anyway. You’ll be able to clone your team’s code and everything!

Make sure to bring a laptop or something. Something with Wi-Fi capabilities.

The one catch is that you won’t have a shared network drive to work with. But that’s OK. You’ve got git!

EDIT

Let me clarify: competitors are welcome to use campus machines to compete. If you’re an S&T student with a login, then you’re all set.

If you were planning to get a temporary login from us, that’s not going to happen. You will need a laptop or something in that case.

  1. Sorry!
