Programming Parallel Computers 2019


Communication channels

Our primary communication channel is Slack — if you have any questions, please try to ask our course staff there! If you have difficulties joining Slack or for some other reason it does not work for you, please email Jukka Suomela.


To create an account in our Slack chat, please follow this link. Just enter your email address, and follow the instructions.

Please use the same user name on both GitHub and Slack. Please also make sure your real name (first name + last name) is set correctly in Slack.

In Slack, we will have separate channels for each exercise; please use the channels #cp, #is, #mf, #nn, and #so to discuss the exercises CP, IS, MF, NN, and SO. On these channels, we will try to focus on those problems that are currently on the recommended path; for more advanced topics, please use channel #advanced. If you have anything to ask about the prerequisite test, please use channel #prereq.

Our lecturers and teaching assistants have user names of the form “something-staff” on Slack.

One-to-one help

If you need one-to-one help, please take part in the exercise sessions and ask there.
