For Pset 1 and Pset2 i have submitted hacker edition assignments.

But just wanna make sure if someone is submitting hacker edition assignment

then do he need to submit standard edition also. Or You have to submit only one edition

whatever you like.

If you are doing this course via edX, you must submit the Standard editions. The Hacker editions are only for your own extra learning.

  • Standard editions are simple. i have 4 years of programming experience. As soon as i saw the first lecture, i got the point that this course is mainly for beginners. But i thought to give it a try just for fun and may be to learn something new. Am i glad that i learned few things that i didnt knew , specially working in linux environment in which i have not worked much. So point is it will be no fun if i am doing standard editions so i am doing hacker editions. So any workaround you can suggest that my hacker edition assignments can be considered. thanks Commented Feb 19, 2015 at 12:58
  • There is no workaround. If you find the standard editions easy,then it should only take a few minutes to do them before working on the hacker ones. Well, I suppose a workaround would be to take the course for credit through Harvard Extension... then you can submit the hackers for grading; but via edX, only the standard editions can be submitted.
