- What did you do this past week?
This week, I looked over the assignment and what was require for it, but I have been preoccupied with interview preparation and job applications, so I haven’t gotten started much yet.
- What’s in your way?
I have not encountered problems yet so far, but I believe that I will come across a few soon. The only thing that may be in my way would be a bit of a time crunch.
- What will you do next week?
I will focus on finishing up Collatz, and then finish another assignment for my Networking class. I will also
- If you read it, what did you think of the Continuous Integration?
I found it really interesting. This article was written in 2006, meaning that it was 15 years ago. At that time, it seemed like a novel idea, however this seems like a standard practice today. Whether or not everyone follows this practice is a different story that I don’t know. However, when I worked in the group in the past, we would try to maintain this practice to avoid merge conflicts. I believe Github is the most well known service that is used for Continuous Integration. I believe that I should start doing more version control myself on both personal projects and class projects.
- What was your experience of Collatz? (this question will vary, week to week)
Not much so far, because I haven’t gotten far in it.
- What was your experience of exceptions? (this question will vary, week to week)
I have experienced a lot of exceptions while programming, more so than errors. The exceptions I am talking about are programming exceptions, and they usually arise to careless mistake, rather than design flaws. For me, they are usually null pointer exceptions, and sometimes arithmetic exceptions.
- What made you happy this week?
I tried hot sauce for the first time, and now I am putting it on a lot of foods. Before, scrambled eggs used to be pretty bland and boring, but now with hot sauce, I can eat them without any sides if I wanted to.
- What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
You can buy drink heaters that constantly keep your drink warm. I have one, and it works like a coaster. I used it this winter to keep my hot chocolate warm.
