Luet oppimateriaalin englanninkielistä versiota. Mainitsit kuitenkin taustakyselyssä
osaavasi suomea. Siksi suosittelemme, että käytät suomenkielistä versiota, joka on
testatumpi ja hieman laajempi ja muutenkin mukava.
Suomenkielinen materiaali kyllä esittelee englanninkielisetkin termit. Myös
suomenkielisessä materiaalissa käytetään ohjelmaprojektien koodissa englanninkielisiä
nimiä kurssin alkupään johdantoesimerkkejä lukuunottamatta.

There are several lab sessions every day except on weekends. This is where you can come
to discuss programming with the course staff and get help on the assignments.
All the lab sessions are at the Maarintalo building (Sähkömiehentie 3, Espoo).
Note: Some students from outside of Aalto may find it possible
to attend the sessions in Espoo. If you are such a student, you’re
welcome to join the sessions on Thursdays and Fridays. Bring your
own laptop. If an excessive number of external students shows
up at the sessions, we’ll need to limit the number of participants.
The table at the end of the page gives the schedule of the lab sessions; that information is valid until
the end of Week 10. There are fewer sessions during the last two weeks (11 and 12); here’s the timetable:
Lab sessions in Week 11 and Week 12
The sessions start a quarter past the indicated hour, but you can come and go as you
please. There’s no set agenda for each session: you can come to the sessions to work
on the assignments and ask for help as the need arises.
Participation is voluntary but highly recommended. You don’t need to (and can’t) sign up
The assistants can help you in English, Finnish, and (in some groups) Swedish.
Thousands of students have given feedback that has contributed to this ebook’s design.
Weeks 1 to 13 of the ebook, including the assignments and weekly bulletins, have been
written in Finnish and translated into English by Juha Sorva.
Weeks 14 to 20 are by Otto Seppälä. That part of the ebook isn’t available during the
fall term, but we’ll publish it when it’s time.
The appendices (glossary, Scala reference,
FAQ, etc.) are by Juha Sorva unless otherwise specified on the page.
The automatic assessment of the assignments has been programmed by Riku Autio, Jaakko
Kantojärvi, Teemu Lehtinen, Timi Seppälä, Teemu Sirkiä, and Aleksi Vartiainen.
The illustrations at the top of each chapter, and the similar drawings elsewhere in the
ebook, are the work of Christina Lassheikki.
The animations that detail the execution Scala programs have been designed by Juha Sorva and
Teemu Sirkiä. Teemu Sirkiä and Riku Autio have done the technical implementation, relying on
Teemu’s Jsvee and Kelmu
The other diagrams and interactive presentations in the ebook are by Juha Sorva.
The O1Library software
has been developed by Aleksi Lukkarinen and Juha Sorva. Several of its key components
are built upon Aleksi’s SMCL
The pedagogy of using tools from O1Library (such as Pic) for simple graphical programming
is inspired by the textbooks How to Design Programs by Flatt, Felleisen, Findler, and
Krishnamurthi and Picturing Programs by Stephen Bloch.
The course platform A+ has been created by
Aalto’s LeTech research group and is largely
developed by students. The current lead developer is Jaakko Kantojärvi; many other
students of computer science and information networks are also active on the project.
For O1’s current teaching staff, please see Chapter 1.1.
