One funny story from this class: during the final I started getting emails that the Coursicle website was down, which definitely revealed my priorities because I immediately stopped taking the final and started to work on fixing Coursicle, only took like 30 minutes or so but it was a pretty critical time of year for registration so I wanted to make sure Coursicle was back up ASAP and I just couldn't focus on my final at that point knowing Coursicle was down.
