We will use Piazza for questions and discussions. In the forum, you can post questions (also anonymously) about homework tasks or course organization etc. And we can keep the discussion separate for different topics. You should all receive a welcome e-mail that invites you to piazza - don't ignore it and register there (it is sent to your address that is in the SIS). If you somehow don't get the e-mail you can register here (just mark that you are a student and press "Join Classes"). Then you have to fill some information about yourself, which is a little annoying, but do it anyway. The home page of the course forum is here and you can click on Q&A to get to the forum part. That's it.
