CS371p Fall 2021: Week 4
What did you do this past week?
This past week, I turned in three projects and some assignments for other CS classes. It was a packed week, with org meetings, school work, and class, but I made it through, so that’s great.
What’s in your way?
I have a heavy CS course load this semester, so it’s been hard keeping up with my classes and managing my time well. I also need to start applying for internships, which I have been putting off for a while now. I think school has been starting to pick up over the past two weeks, and I am beginning to feel the effects of that.
What will you do next week?
I hope to get started on my Compilers project, Algo homework, and Competitive Programming homework, and maybe get a head start on the next OOP project.
If you read it, what did you think of the Paper #4: What Happens to Us?
I thought this paper was a very necessary read, as things like this happen all the time in CS and tech spaces. I hope more attention can be brought to this issue, and am glad we were assigned this paper to read in this class.
What was your experience of Collatz, exceptions, and strcmp? (this question will vary, week to week)
I remember Collatz from SWE, so the past couple weeks have been a nice refresher on the topic. I can’t remember if we did strcmp in SWE as well, but the topic seemed pretty straightforward and easy to implement and understand.
What made you happy this week?
Turning in all my projects and assignments by Thursday made me pretty happy, and I was able to take the whole weekend off from school which felt great. My friend from Dallas also visited this weekend, so it was nice hanging out with him and catching up.
What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
If you are a Google Chrome user, there is a neat feature that allows you to group your tabs together so that if you have a million tabs open like me, you can organize them into subjects to make your browser slightly more organized. To do this, you just right click on a tab and press add tab to group. Then you can slide over relevant tabs to the group and expand or compress the group based on what you want open. It’s super handy, and a more detailed explanation can be found here:
