CS 373 Spring 2021 Week 3: Remus Wong
- What did you do this past week?
I worked on the collatz project and got the first two tests passing. Setting up the environment was seamless and made the workflow a lot easier. Before I had to ssh to the lab computer so I didn’t have to download everything on my own machine but docker takes care of it all.
- What’s in your way?
Not entirely sure why I am not able to pass test 3 on hackerrank. I have a pretty simple solution that caches input values so I’ll have to keep playing around with another method to try and optimize for a better time.
- What will you do next week?
I’ll clean up all of the pipeline requirements that Downing requires from us. I’ve seen from the piazza posts that people are having trouble with integration and timing out.
- If you read it, what did you think of the Continuous Integration?
I have not read it yet but I will get to it tonight :)
- What was your experience of Collatz? (this question will vary, week to week)
All the pipeline requirements Downing requires from us is a little annoying for a project of this size as it is largely unnecessary.
- What was your experience of exceptions? (this question will vary, week to week)
To be honest it isn’t something that I have much experience using. Outside of Java, I hardly ever use exceptions but I understand their in increasing the reliability of code.
- What made you happy this week?
All my classes but one are projected based classes so I have been having fun doing all my projects. In addition, I had my 21 birthday this week, and while I am not in Austin I got online with a group of friends and played a new game called Valheim (perhaps with some drinks). I’m pretty used to lock-down at this point so while I would have liked to have seen my friends in person I still had a good time.
