CS371p Fall 2020: Jesse Huang
What did you do this past week?
I got started on the project in Software Engineering which is the same but in Python, and I had a little bug that took me a while to fix. In this class I’ve only gotten as far as setting up the Gitlab. I’ve also just played some volleyball and tried recruiting for UT handball (we got one!).
What’s in your way?
I’m taking Computer Vision in addition to this class and SWE so one day I had to completely devote to CV and didn’t touch SWE nor OOP at all.
What will you do next week?
I think I’ll probably be able to finish the project in SWE and then just translate it to C++. I’ll also just hanging with roommates and friends and doing homework for other classes like usual — maybe go swimming.
What was your experience of assertions, unit tests, and coverage? (this question will vary, week to week)
Assertions were actually already useful. In Python I asserted that the max cycle length should be at least one and it failed, so I found out the range it was going over was off by one and not running at all. Unit tests and coverage have just been fine however.
How are you doing and holding up? What’s been most helpful for you in terms of support at this time?
I’m doing pretty well I think. My roommates and friends are good company, and I’m very used to working out at home now after doing it for a summer. The best thing I’m doing for myself right now is just taking maybe 10 minutes out of every day to just sit, sip tea, and think with some music in the background.
What made you happy this week?
I played Mahjong online with my family recently, and while I lost the first round, I made a huge comeback from last place by the end
What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
I was having an error I could not google the solution for until I saw a small comment saying restarting their computer helped. After maybe 3 hours of trying different commands and even going to lab hours that’s the only thing that fixed it, and I’ll never know how!
