CS371p Blog: Week 7

  1. What did you do this past week? This past week I was able to finish all of my projects in each of my classes. It was really rewarding to get all of my work done a day or two early and then being able to just relax for a little bit this past week.
  2. What’s in your way? Nothing particular has been in my way this week. However, my allergies have been bothering me a ton this week and they’ve been making my eyes really itchy and tired. This has kinda made me a little lethargic, so I probably need to go out and get some allergy medicine this week.
  3. What will you do next week? This next week I’m really just going to try and grind out as mush schoolwork as possible. I just really want to get ahead so I can focus on enjoying my spring break and not worrying about homework looming over my head whenever classes resume.
  4. What did you think of Paper #7: Liskov Substitution Principle? I learned a lot from this paper. The examples were clear and intuitive and I like that they actually demonstrated how this applies to a real-world problem and solution.
  5. What was your experience of consts, arrays, and equal? (this question will vary, week to week) I had a good understanding of these ahead of time, but I did learn a few things about the nuances within C++ because of these lectures. The most surprising thing I learned was how arrays with a primitive data type that are left uninitialized don’t fill in the values with the default value of the primitive. I found this odd, but it was also super interesting. I enjoyed this week’s lectures.
  6. What made you happy this week? As mentioned previously, I was really happy with myself for finishing my projects early and earning myself some free time. It was just really satisfying being on top of everything this week and I was proud of myself for being productive.
  7. What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week? My pick-of-the-week is the use of Starlink to give wifi to people in Ukraine. I found this use of technology super interesting and showed how we can use technology to help those affected by tragic events such as war or natural disasters. Here is a brief article about the event: https://nypost.com/2022/02/27/elon-musk-activates-starlink-in-ukraine/
