Due to the current situation and the late start of lectures in November, the course currently has somewhat unclear framework conditions.
Here's my attempt to give the whole thing some structure.
Please read everything carefully, and if you have any further questions, please contact me.

Unfortunately, there will be no places for co-students this semester as the university is already overbooked.

I confirmed the max. amount of 16 people today (primarily students from the design institute, because the CS is part of it).

The waiting list currently has 6 people. Since the lecture starts in November, things can still change till then.
Should we by then have switched to 100% distance, I will confirm more who have registered. I therefore thank all of you who are not accepted yet for your patience.

If someone among the confirmed persons already knows that they will not be able to participate, please unsubscribe as soon as possible so that others have a chance.

In the computer studio itself, only 8 students are possible at the same time (1.5m distance) so the attendance times in the studio will be divided up.

The course takes place in a mixed form of videos provided by me, practice with presence in the studio and submissions / practice at home.

At each class-appointment there will be practice and questioning time in presence mode of 1.5 hours for everybody.

Furthermore there is always the possibility to get in contact with me with Zoom and Slack.

A detailed description of the course, the division of the students into groups of 8, etc. will follow at the beginning of November before the course begins.
