Lab 1: Part 6: Saving your work

At the end of every lab, you will save your work. One way to save your work is to upload your lab folder to your account on the cs server, following similar steps to what we did at the start of today's lab. Other options are to save in your google drive, or email the files to yourself. This page will describe how to save your folder to your account on cs.wellesley.edu.

  1. Open CyberDuck and use your bookmark to connect to the cs.wellesley.edu server
  2. Navigate into cs111/
  3. Drag the lab01 folder from your desktop to the CyberDuck window so that it is uploaded into the cs111/ directory.

Here's a short video to show you how and where to upload your lab01 folder. The video starts after you have already logged yourself into cs.wellesley.edu via CyberDuck (in the video, we are logged in as cs111a, your window should show your own username).

Now you have a copy of the lab01 folder both on your lab computer's Desktop, and also your account on the cs.wellesley.edu server. This way, if you want to refer to your lab work when you're working with a partner on a problem set or working on a different computer, you can get access to it.

You now have a copy of your lab work on the server, so if you are working on a lab machine, you can now drag it from the Desktop of the lab computer into the Trash and then empty the Trash (Finder > Empty Trash). You always want to leave a clean Desktop before logging out.
