In the following exercises, we would like to demonstrate tools and techniques which are helpful in further courses. Students can do the work on their own before class, or during the assigned time. Students will perform tasks in groups of three or four participants. If you can not form a team let Juha Kälkäinen and Ivan Sanchez Milara know.


1. Task - Introduction to Wiki
