CS371p Fall 2020: Elias Lampietti
What did you do this past week?
This past week, I wrapped up the Allocator project on Monday night. I had a very busy weekend and week before so I definitely felt rushed on Tuesday to get it in on time. I then saw that the deadline was extended by one day however I had already submitted and was happy with my work.
What’s in your way?
Since the last 2 weeks were much busier than this upcoming one, I do not see much in my way. I plan to take advantage of this free time to get started on the Darwin project early.
What will you do next week?
Next week I plan to get started on the Darwin project by first re-reading over the implementation details, then I will try to code just a simple working solution.
If you read it, what did you think of Ethical CS?
I did not read this one yet and will see I have time to complete it after I take a coding assessment.
What was your experience of lambdas, initialization, std::initializer_list, and std::vector?
I have experience with lambda’s through my work in Python and I find them very concise and useful. I thought learning about different types of initialization in class was helpful and gave me a better understanding of C++. I have not used std::initializer_list before but I plan to use it in the future. I am familiar with std::vector and plan to continue using it in my future C++ coding.
What made you happy this week?
This week my 3rd roommate just bought a bike for himself. I already enjoyed taking my bike out to go around Ladybird Lake, however now that both my roommates have bikes, it is even more fun to go out with all three of us. If you are into biking or running, I recommend downloading Strava, which is a nicely designed app to track all of your routes and time progress.
What is your pick-of-the-week?
My pick-of-the-week is to check out tableau, which is a data visualization software that I think is great even for individual projects where you’re working with large amounts of data and need to visualize it easily.
