Seamcarve Out!

Seamcarve has been released. Those of you who weren’t registered on banner by last night might not have access to the support code until later tonight. If the install script doesn’t work, please don’t panic. You can still take this time to read over the handout and review the seamcarve pseudocode in the lecture slides.

Happy seamcarving!

You will need this to be completed by our Python Lab next Thursday. As such, the due date is next Wednesday at 11:59pm.

Post any questions here!

Introduce yourselves here, and tell us about your alter-ego unlikely superhero! (part of the first homework)!
