The new repository for this year is at

Do the following to clone it into your local machine:

git clone

This will create the folder cs114spring2018hw in your current directory.

When we have a new assignment or make an update or two to the code, you can download a new assignment or get an updated version of the code by running the following command in the directory where you clone the repository.

git pull origin master

This will synchronize what you have on your machine (your local repository) with what we have on the online repository.
