CS373 Spring 2021 Week 9: Joshua Skadberg
- What did you do this past week?
This week I and my team finished the project that was due. I was working on the expedition instance pages and I had to make it dynamically pull data from our API. I also had to make sure to implement the pagination module that a team member coded up. I also worked on the newest project and did the gitlab customer issues.
- What’s in your way?
I also have cs371p which is also work intensive, so balancing out the two is more challenging that I thought, but I believe that I will be able to manage. I have been getting more used to handling life in quarantine, and having some leeway from the professor and UT as compared to regular school helps a bunch.
- What will you do next week?
Next week I will continue working on this new project, and I believe that I will try to implement searching and filtering for my model pages. I will also be doing a project from my other class as well, which is called Darwin and involves creatures on a board.
- If you read it, what did you think of the Dependency Inversion Principle?
I thought it was very interesting and insightful. I hope I will be able to implement it into my own coding, but I know from experience it is hard to look at the bigger picture at the same time as focusing on the finer details such as a function.
- What was your experience of +, *, ** and decorators? (this question will vary, week to week)
I have not used them and it is a very new thing to me. I still don’t quite understand them, but hopefully I will and perhaps they will become a very useful tool to me in the future.
- What made you happy this week?
I got to reconnect with a high school friend this weekend which was pretty awesome. Of course it wasn’t in real life, but rather over the internet, which is still perfectly fine.
- What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
HEB sells “oreos” that have 4 long rows of cookies for only $2, its quite a steal.
