CS373 Spring 2021: Remus Wong
- What did you do this past week?
I met with my team over the weekend. We didn’t really do too much this week since a lot of us had a lot going on and were in crunch time mode for some things due before spring break. However, we’ve cleared up our plans moving forward and are getting started on the backend elements. I do look forward to working on it as I find the backend portion much more interesting than the front end portion.
- What’s in your way?
I’ve been assigned with setting up the database for the. I’ve had some experience working with postgresql and loading up some data onto aws RDS. However, I haven’t ever looked at sqlalchemy and will have to do some research on that.
- What will you do next week?
Next week I’ll mostly be doing projects over Spring Break. I don’t plan on going anywhere so it's time to just grind these projects. I’ll take a little bit of time to play some Valheim with the bois but then it's back to work.
- If you read it, what did you think of the Liskov Substitution Principle?
I took a quick glance at the article but I have yet to fully read it. I plan on reading it after writing this though :)
- What was your experience of iteration, comprehendions, generators, and digits iterator? (this question will vary, week to week)
Python’s implementation of iterators is really interesting and I think that Downing did a really good job explaining it.
- What made you happy this week?
Well of course Spring Break! I don’t have much planned but since I’ve stayed at home for the semester and some of my friends from UT at coming back into town it’ll be good to have some in-person contact. One thing that has been going well is my League of Legends fantasy league I’m in with some friends. I’m in the finals and there a nice prize for winning…
- What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
If you plan on using postgresql you should try using pgadmin which is a desktop console you can use to better manage your database. I used it when I was taking data management last semester and was my main tool for dealing with my databases.
