CS371p Fall 2020: Jesse Huang

What did you do this past week?

Pretty much all I did was work on projects over the course of the week, but I did have a successful interview last Tuesday that led to an internship offer. I didn’t have a lot of time to start on Darwin because I was reviewing lectures for my computer vision project. I hope I’ll have enough time for Darwin though.

What’s in your way?

I’m pretty much trying to make it past Wednesday when all the projects are due and I can finally take a destressing night. I’m starting my other projects pretty late this time, so it’ll be a bit of a grind but really nothing I’m not used to nor intimidated by (hopefully ><).

What will you do next week?

After finishing the projects and turning them in Wednesday I hope to take ONLY a single day break then get started on the next round, so I can spread out longer breaks in between and do other personal projects as well instead of cramming them into half a week.

If you read it, what did you think of The Interface Segregation Principle?

The paper was a bit confusing as I had to skip a couple of the preceding papers it’s built on, but I could still understand the idea of keeping things separate for better scalability and for the security of sibling classes.

What was your experience of continuing to implement std::vector?

There was a bit of confusion but after reviewing some notes and getting the answer I think it wasn’t that bad I’ll just have to review it later for the exam.

What made you happy this week?

I got an internship! I’m excited to work there, and the pressure is off for finding one now, but I might still try and look for what else is out there. I also didn’t go trick or treating, but my roommate was nice enough to get us all a bulk bag of assorted candy that we finished within the day.

What’s your tip-of-the-week?

While reviewing the syntax for C++ I haven’t found everything in the notes and while the top result for C++ is cplusplus.com for documentation, I find it a bit tiring to read and would rather like to just see the example which is much easier on the eyes on GeeksforGeeks.
