Working in a pair

Getting started

If you are working in a pair, you will need to request a repository for your pair. Here are the steps you will need to take:

  1. Follow the chisubmit instructions for registering as a pair.

  2. Wait for email from GitLab to your UChicago email address saying that the group repository is ready. Take into account that your repository won’t be created until both of you have completed the registration instructions. Please note that the repository won’t be created immediately; however, if you both register and do not get an e-mail from GitLab (or don’t see the pair repository on GitLab) after an hour, please ask for help on Piazza.

  3. Setup repositories: Both students should run this command:

    cs-setup-script cmsc12100-aut-17

    Similar to when you set up your individual repository, the script will present you with a list of repositories you have access to. This list should now include your pair repository. Just choose that repository from the list. If you wish to work in CSIL as well as on your VM, you will need to run to the setup script in the lab and choose the new repository.

Please let us know if you have any problems.

See the file pa2/README.txt for a description of the files we have provided for this assignment.


To submit your assignment, make sure that you have:

  • put your names at the top of your file,
  • added, committed, and pushed to the git server, and
  • run the chisubmit submission command.

Remember to push your code to the server early and often! Also, remember that you can submit as many times as you like before the deadline.
