CS 373 Week 5

Feb 18 - Feb 24

What did you do this past week? I joined a group for project 2, though it wasn’t the group I initially thought I would be joining. There was a bit of confusion on who was in which group, and we ended up having too many people so I volunteered to move to a different group. I know two of the people in my new group quite well, so it’s nice to be working with them. [Read More]

CS 373 Week 4

Feb 11 - Feb 17

What did you do this past week? Last week I finished the Collatz project easily enough, I mainly just had to finish the documentation requirements. I did end up implementing a meta cache based on the intervals idea we discussed in class, since my code would randomly fail HackerRank’s third test due to timeout. The optimization brought the time down to just 1.5 seconds, which was honestly surprising how well it worked. [Read More]

CS 373 Week 3

Feb 04 - Feb 10

What did you do this past week? I actually started working on the Collatz project and ended up making significant progress! I’m passing all of the HackerRank tests, so now I just have to write some acceptance tests and get the documentation up to par. It was fun coming up with ways to implement the optimizations we discussed in class. Since I made sure to commit after each change, it was very easy to see exactly how each affected the runtime.

CS 373 Week 2

Jan 28 - Feb 03

What did you do this past week? I got a hold of the text book since I had forgotten to previously which led to me missing a couple of quiz questions. Also I got docker working and tried it out. It’s pretty cool how easy it makes it to create separate environments, and because of that I plan on using it with some personal projects going forward. Also I started planning out some stuff for the Collatz Project but haven’t fully started yet. [Read More]

CS 373 Week 1

Jan 21 - Jan 27

What did you do this past week? I’ve mainly just worked on setting up this blog and getting everything sorted out and ready to go for the semester. I made a HackerRank account and it seems like a really cool platform. I spent some time solving the basic C++ questions and it worked really well so hopefully all will go well when it comes time for exams. What’s in your way? [Read More]
