What did you do this past week?
This past week was the start of the grind. I began on the Collatz project, just getting the basic code working and running. My other classes began having homework in them so I’ve stayed busy. I’ve also started dance practice for the two teams i’m on this semester, taking up quite a bit of my “free time”.
What’s in your way?
The biggest thing in my way is going to be time management. Then again, I feel like it’s always time management. I’m packed this semester, and I’m going to be struggling to make sure to balance it all. From what it seems like however, SWE is the only programming heavy CS class I’ll be taking this semester, being only in SWE and Computer Networks with Gouda, and I’m blessed for that.
What will you do next week?
This upcoming week I will be finishing the Collatz project, hopefully by Tuesday. Also, I plan to have my team for the next upcoming projects by the end of this week. Other than that, I’ll finally be starting working on my business classes for my minor, and continue practicing for my dance teams.
What’s my experience of the class?
My experience in this class has so far been going as I expected. I struggled on the quizzes this week, mostly because I forgot the time constraints were 4 minutes instead of 5 and I ran out of time. I was unfortunately absent on Monday because I had a fever, but it seemed like I didn’t miss crucial information. Also, just my luck that I was apparently called on that same day, resulting in a zero for my participation grade.
What’s my pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
If you don’t really know Python (which I don’t), I used this website in high school to practice my Java. There’s exercises for both Java and Python to help introduce you to the language and get your brain working. Unfortunately, there isn’t as many exercises for Python as there are for Java, but it’ll at least introduce you to the basics of the language coupled with some logic puzzles.
