RIP 6.170

6.170 is (was) the Software Engineering Lab class at MIT. Apparently it's just been scrapped. Its content will be replaced by the new 6.005 (Principles of Software Development) in conjunction with a "series of new software laboratory classes, numbered 6.17*".

I'm sure this plan is all carefully thought out and everything but I'm kind of depressed about it anyway. I really liked 6.170, especially the month-long team project at the end, which is apparently not going to be included in the 6.005 class.
