1. What did you do this past week?

I had already finished the majority of voting last week so there was not that much to do. I just had to do the git issues and write the checktestdata checker. I did encounter some trouble with the pipeline though because for some reason after we uncommented those lines in the makefile it wasn’t able to detect our voting-tests.

2. What’s in your way?

Spring is coming and thus so are my allergies. I can already feel my eyes itch and I feel like we barely got any cold weather. Weather aside, the test is coming up and I’ll probably finish that hackrank challenge Downing was making us do on Friday. I am still a little bit iffy on using templates but iterators make intuitive sense.

3. What will you do next week?

I will get started on the next project probably. I’ve got my next few sets of exams and projects coming up and I don’t want to work on it over Spring Break. The OOP test is coming up so I’ll start looking at the past notes since there are some minute details we need to know.

4. What was your experience of containers, container adapters and iterators? (this question will vary, week to week)

Outside of academics, I have not really applied a high level of object-oriented programming. Sure there were some side projects here and there but nothing that big. I knew about Java’s structure of inheritance, but I was unaware that C++ was structured using containers. I have been familiar with the idea of containers but container adapters are a little new.

5. What made you happy this week?

I had some time to work on some personal projects this week so that’s always good. I’ve been interested in Vue lately and have been trying to learn that with the recent release of Vue 3.

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

If you had an annoying time renaming everything in Collatz, an easy way is to just find in all files with case sensitivity and replace those words.
