I must say this at the very beginning: ######## WARNING ####### If you want to learn anything about computer science, DO NOT take this course! This is a journalism course with computer science course number. The professor is always talking about something she knows in journalism, and she is kind of "anti-technology". Only the guest speaker will leave some programming assignments, which will count 15% of the final grade in total. The final project could be a disaster if you naively think this is a computer science course. 65% of the course depends on the final project and the instructor strongly prefer it to be a pure journalistic one. No computer science involved. Websites? NONONO! Phone apps? NONONO! Cloud computing? NONONO! Machine learning? NONONO! Data mining? NONONO! Natural language processing? NONONO! Write loooooooooong reports? YESYESYES!
