CS373: Spring 2021 Week 6

What did you do this past week?

This past week I tried to catch up everything I missed last the prior week because of the winter storms. I believe I have caught up to a point I feel comfortable again. Met some more with my project team and volunteered to head the designing of our API on Postman.

What’s in your way?

I have my first midterm coming up this week so I have been studying for that and then had some other personal issues to take care of. Though, they have been taken care of and solved to clear my schedule for my academics.

What will you do next week?

I still need to get our project working on my computer. I have spent most of my time trying to figure out Postman but, now I will attempt clone and running the project on my end.

If you read it, what did you think of the Single Responsibility Principle?

I think it will definitely take some practice to get used to the technique but, I believe I can be pretty useful. I think it allows for better organization of projects by breaking them up more thoroughly. Though, this does involve more pre-planning of the project which can be annoying.

What was your experience of IDB1 and reduce?

IDB1 has been fairly simple. It just takes a lot of team work on planning what we want the project to be and how we are going to do it. I have a little experience with RESTful APIs so I was able to share a little bit of advice. Then, reduce was also pretty simple. The implementation did not take my group very long to develop.

How did you fare in the storm?

I did not have power/water/internet for 4–5 days. The first day was a lot of fun and bearable! Though, the following days were a bit annoying and made me appreciate the utilities a lot more.

What made you happy this week?

I was happy to see my group made some progress on our project. The weather is back to normal and I put out some of applications for software engineering positions. I feel I have had a pretty productive week which makes me happy.

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

My tip-of-the-week is to create a regular meeting schedule with your project group. Even if most of the work has been finished, communicating and making connections with other software engineers will be very beneficial to your future no matter where you may end up.
