Dear students,

Welcome to ITCS251 and I hope that you’ll find it to be a fun and happy summer session. I’ll use this page to keep you updated with course issues and to make it a repository of the course materials.

My name is Hesham al-Ammal and I’ll be your instructor during the summer. You can reach me at hesham at itc dot uob dot bh.

The course syllabus is available (in pdf format).
