CS371g Spring 2022: Sang Pham

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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/
