Black Lair is an academic mentorship program open to all students in CS106A and CS106B. Black Lair runs multiple help sessions per week in which students can come in with bugs, questions, or seeking general guidance. With 20 amazing course helpers, dozens of quarterly sessions, and 400 students served annually, Black Lair works to foster a community of mentorship, collaboration, and inclusivity within the CS Community. Starting this week, Black Lair is providing Assignment Debugging Help for CS106A and CS106B ​with the support of the CS Department. Black Lair is open to everyone, so if you’re a 106A or 106B student who needs conceptual or debugging help, feel free to stop by!
