Beginning of che Computer Programming 1 classes
Theory and laboratory classes will start on October 4th and October 14th, respectively.
Lectures are in italian.
Lectures will take place according to the following schedule:
|Tuesday||8:30 - 10:30||aula 204 (via Celoria)|
|Wednesday||8:30 - 10:30||aula beta (via Comelico)|
|Thursday||12:30 - 14:30||aula beta (via Comelico)|
Any change to the schedule will be announced in class and published in paragraph News of this page. In particular, the Tuesday lesson will occasionally be held from 8:30 to 11:30.

By appointment (via e-mail).
It is possible contact the teacher by e-mail, taking care to read in advance the guide prepared by Prof. Sebastiano Vigna and clearly specifying in the message the course name and the academic year. In particular, students are encouraged to always use their academic address (i.e. based on the domain
studenti.unimi.it) signing with name and student ID number and recalling that the response time may vary depending on the teacher commitments.
The course is based on the following material:
- the textbook: K. N. King, C Programming -- A Modern Approach, second edition, published by W. W. Norton (ISBN 978-0-393-97950-3), associated to a homepage containing an errata corrige, the examples' source code and the solution to some exercises;
- the course notes (in italian) for the part on architecture and boolean logic, written by Prof. Paolo Boldi.
Students willing to get a strong background on the subject of computer programming are also advised to read:
- the textbook Brian Kernighan and Dennis M. Ritchie, Il linguaggio C, published by Pearson Education Italia, Milano (ISBN: 887192200X);
- the textbook Brian Kernighan and Rob Pike, Programmazione nella pratica, published by Pearson Education Italia, Milano (ISBN: 8871920724);
- the textbook Jon Bentley, Programming Pearls, published by Addison-Wesley (ISBN: 0201657880).
The course explains the topics listed in the lecture calendar, covering the course notes and textbook contents in chapters 1-17 (excluding section 12.4) and 22.

The exam conists of three parts: a written one, a laboratory one, and an oral one. These parts should be passed on the same session (check later on for a list of exceptions concerning the sessions of January and February, and for midterms) with a positive score in all them. The average score of the written and laboratory part (weighed in function of their credits) represents the base score for the oral part. It is highlighted that the oral examination can lead to both rising or lowering this base score, possibly implying a fail.
Students willing to take the exam in a given session should subscribe through SIFA (using either @SIFA on-line, or the corresponding terminals at the university), both for the laboratory and the written parts. This holds for every sesion, including midterms.
The course has two optional midterms scheduled (on 16th November and approximately on end of January). Students willing to take the exam in January or February and whose midterms are both passed are not requested to take the written part (the average score of midterms substitutes the written part score). Students having passed both midterms can anyway take the written part, although in this case they need to pass the latter and cannot get back to its midterm average score.
Students failing a written part with a sensibly low score (that is, sensibly below the average score of all students for that session) will not be allowed to take the exam on the next session.
Students of Computer science and telecommunications
Students of the degree of Computer science and telecommunications can take the exam of Computer programming passing an oral test held during the written examinations of Computer programming 1 for the degree of Computer science and music. They are anyway requested to subscribe to the exam.
