CS371g Spring 2022: Sang Pham
- What did you do this past week?
In the past week, I have been getting my school works organized and started to plan ahead. To get myself ready for the assignment, I have been doing some easy leetcode questions. I also played a lot of volleyball and hung out with friends.
- What’s in your way?
My plan was to get started on the project early but I wasn’t able to do it. I also missed a considerable easy quiz because I wasn’t paying enough attention in class.
- What will you do next week?
For next week I will priority to finish the Collatz project and then spend time on other assignments in other classes. I also plan to do at least an easy leetcode question at the beginning of the day to get my mind going.
- What did you think of Paper #1: Syllabus?
I had experienced the grading scale before and I pretty much like it better than the normal grading scale. Although this year seems different and harder to get an A. I think this is a great way to get students to learn about the syllabus because it was quite complicated.
- What was your experience of assertions and Collatz? (this question will vary, week to week)
I have used assertions before and I think it is fairly easy to use. However, I learned that it is not a good way to test our code and we should use unit tests instead. Collatz is a very interesting problem and a great way to get me thinking about optimizing my code.
- What made you happy this week?
I’m happy this week because I was playing volleyball 5 out of 7 days. My team also have a great scrimmage with the UT club B team and it went over my expectation.
- What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
My tip-of-the-week for this week would be the good old Leetcode. I haven’t solved problems for some time so it is a great way for me to jog my brain. Leetcode also offers weekly competitions and many interviews coding questions from big companies. Find out more at https://leetcode.com/
