Nifty Assignments Website

This is a great website for educators looking for extra (and fun) programming assignments. These assignments are selected from many submissions at every SIGCSE conference.  Most come with a most everything an educator needs to get the assignment going.  Many of the assignments listed would serve as great end-of-course assignments.  I’ve used Breakout (2006) for just this purpose and it was a big hit among my students with lots of open-ended assignment possibilities.  If you are looking for new assignments to augment or enliven your course, this is a great resource.  http://nifty.stanford.edu/


We just learned the hard way that data recovery from backups is easier than losing everything and needing a company to get the data but thank god they exist or we would have lost everything.
