Lab this week is optional in that we will not be taking roll. However, this is an opportunity to come to ensure that you have Python and PyCharm installed and working properly on your laptops. If you do not come to lab, we will assume you have taken care of this yourself and you are ready to go when we start coding in lecture next week. So, if you have any doubts, come on down to lab, meet some of the TAs, and make sure you're laptop is setup and ready to go!
