CS371p Spring 2021: Week 7

What did you do this past week?

This week was pretty busy for me since most of my classes were trying to catch up due to the snowstorm. I had a couple of group projects, including the Voting project, that I had to work on this week. I also had an exam on Monday which went alright. I did try to take breaks though and do fun stuff like hanging out with my roommates.

What’s in your way?

I wouldn’t say anything is really in my way. I guess something that I could improve on is just trying to get more sleep and also trying to stay focused when I’m doing my school work.

What will you do next week?

Next week is a lot less busy for me so I’ll try to relax more and just take it easy. I’ll also need to finish up some of my assignments/projects that are due before spring break. I’ll also try to find time to exercise more especially since I’ve barely moved this past week.

If you read it, what did you think of the Open-Closed Principle?

I thought that the article was very interesting and I was able to learn a lot from it. I now have a better understanding of the importance of creating open-closed designs so that it can continue to be built upon without getting rid of previous work. I think this information will also be very helpful in the workplace.

What was your experience of arrays, iterators, and algorithms? (this question will vary, week to week)

I’ve always known the basics of arrays and iterators but never learned that in-depth about them as we did in class. I thought that the lectures were very informative and I feel like I can code arrays and iterators a lot better without always searching them up.

What made you happy this week?

I went to Lick Honest Ice Creams this week with one of my friends. The weather that day was also really nice so it was good to get some fresh air and spend some time with my friend.

What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?

My tip-of-the-week is to use VSCode Live Share when working on programming projects with a partner or a group. I’m pretty sure most people probably have heard of it and used it but I just think it’s very useful especially in a virtual environment.
