Edit

We will start off each lecture with some music.

Nominate a song by emailing Nasser the YouTube link. Keep it clean and inspirational. It should make us excited coming to SOFTENG 281!

At the end, the class will vote and there will be a prize for the winning song.

If your song is selected to be played in a lecture, it will be added here with your name. You will also be given a (small) prize for contributing a cool song. As you can see, spaces are limited.

Please note: if we feel there’s a possibility that the song might come across as (even slightly) offensive, we will not be selecting it. Keep this in mind when selecting the song, as the video itself also needs to be clean (since we show the video also). We tend to also prefer selecting songs that are likely ones people haven’t heard before, and/or have a cool and engaging video.
