Beginning on the second day of class, each student in LING 402 is responsible for daily practice homework. The idea is for you to log in to the cl server, and then actively practice the command line tools you have learned.
After you finish your practice session, you are required to write a slightly longer summary explaining in more detail what you actually did in your practice session.
$ git clone https://github.com/20XX-Fall-UIUC-LING402/yourGithubID-daily.git
In the above, you will need to replace 20XX with the current year and use your actual Github userID rather than “yourGithubID”
Now, to actually perform a daily homework practice session, use cd to navigate into the new directory, and then run ./practice.sh. That script will do the following:
Doing the daily homework is an important component of this class. It will help reinforce the material you learn, and help make you more comfortable working at the command line. It also represents a non-trivial portion of your grade, so you are strongly advised to take it seriously. In the past, I have had students who otherwise were doing well in the class not achieve the grade they were working towards due to not regularly completing their daily homework.
