unofficial School of Computing wiki

tom has now left Leeds and this site isn't being updated anymore. Shout if you want to pick it up.

This site is tom's attempt to document the undocumented processes in Leeds' School of Computing. Nothing here is official - just a dump of heresay. Official sources have improved since I started. See School Sharepoint and the Wiki on Teams. Please contribute via pull-requests

A Computing specific version of the unis's link dump.
