|MSDN Academic Alliance (DreamSpark)|
Cinnameg is a multiparadigm programming language. It includes the basics of functional, imperative, logic and object-oriented programming. See the manual and introduction.
If you need to contact me, email is the preferred method.
An email message sent to your professor (or to professional colleagues, employers, etc.) is not the same as a text message sent to your friend. Do not use abbreviations such as u for you. Write in complete sentences, and use correct spelling and punctuation. If you send me a message in all lower case letters with no punctuation and incorrect spelling, you can expect me to send it directly to the garbage heap. If you cannot take the time to write correctly, then I will not take the time to respond to your message.
M–F 2:00–3:00 or by appointment.
Computer science majors can be registered to use the Microsoft Academic Alliance (now called DreamSpark — how long will that name last?), which allows you to download and use selected Microsoft software while you are a student. To become registered for it and to download software, do the following.
I am responsible for registering computer science majors. If you are not a computer science major, request someone else to register you. Also, you must currently be registered in at least one computer science course.
To request registration, send me email from your ECU mail account to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a request to be registered for MSDN Acadamic Alliance. Make your request clear and readable. Do not write it in text-messaging code. Indicate that you are a computer science major and list at least one computer science course in which you are currently registered. I will ignore requests sent from non-ECU accounts.
Do not expect an immediate response. I will register you when I go through my email.
After you are registered, you will (hopefully) receive email from Microsoft telling you your password. If I have sent you notification that you have been registered, but you do not receive anything from Microsoft within a day, let me know (by email).
The software that is available is entirely up to Microsoft. It can change over time. I do not have any special information about what is offered, and cannot give you access to any software that is not listed.
If you have problems with installation of software from ISO files, refer to the help section of the website. Once in help, there is a link under Downloading Dreamspark Software to "I have downloaded an .img or .iso file. What do I do now?"
