Each week is referenced by the Monday that begins it, e.g. the week of August 23rd, our class session is scheduled August 25th; your blog post is due August 29th; blog post comments can begin as soon as the first posts are made and continue until August 31st.

Readings should be done by class time, while technical exercises may wait to start until after class except the “before class” activities in Module 1. I expect Slack discussion will mostly occur between class and the blog deadline but there is no hard limit on starting or ending a discussion; feel free to keep poking at a topic that particularly interests you or is relevant to your group project, as long as it doesn’t cause you to fall behind on other module(s).
