CS371g Summer 2021 Week 5: Varun Nayak

What did you do this past week?

This week we resubmitted my project Netflix. My project was not passing the pipeline and I had to resubmit my acceptance tests. I completed that and then met my new partner to start working on the Integer project.

What’s in your way?

This week I had friends come over from Houston and Dallas. We are celebrating the 4th of July. I will need to cram the Netflix project and finish by tomorrow in order to complete before the deadline. After my friends leave I will need to clean out my apartment building for moving out.

What will you do next week?

Next week I will complete the Integer projet with my partner. This assignment will be a bit more straightfoward than Netflix since there are HackerRank challenges.

If you read it, what did you think of the Paper #5: Continuous Integration?

I think having CI experience is more important because it is a require skill for jobs. I am glad this class prepares us for actual software engineering jobs. I plan to continue and improve in continouus integration.

What was your experience of lambdas, capture by value, and capture by reference? (this question will vary, week to week)

I have had some experience in lambdas and capturing by value and by reference in Haskell in CS 345 programming languages. I hope to gain a better understanding of these topics through the exercises and quizzes.

What was your experience of function objects, iterator traits, and iterator tags? (this question will vary, week to week)

I do not have much experience with these topics.

What made you happy this week?

Starting early on the project has made me feel a lot better about this project, and has let me relax and enjoy my time much more.

What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?

I recently learned about VS Code Live Share. I think it is very useful when working with others especially on the partner asssignments.
