CS373 Spring 2022: Cole Weinman — Week 3
What did you do this week?
This week I wrapped up Collatz and focused on my other classes to finish some other projects. Also with the storm, I took a nice break from working for a day.
What’s in your way?
Compared to the week before, I’ve gotten a lot out of my way, and I believe at this point the only thing in my way is time. I don’t feel like I have enough time to complete everything I want to do. I want to spend more time in this class because I think it is the most applicable to my career.
What will you do next week?
Next week I will turn in Collatz on Monday. Then I will focus on work for my other classes, mainly Algo.
What did you think of Paper #3: Continuous Integration?
I really enjoyed reading about continuous integration. Even though the paper was a little dated, it was a great overview of the benefits and process of CI. Though my experience with various open source code, I’ve seen a lot of CI tools in my life, but it was nice to read about the behind the scenes and methodology of it all.
What was your experience of UnitTests, Coverage, and IsPrime?
I had never used the Python unit testing framework or the Coverage package before this project. I liked how simple unit testing on Python can be by simply writing functions and having it run them all without having to write any kind of test harness. Also it was cool to see Coverage work because I had never seen a tool that would do such a thing. I’m definitely going to use this in the future to see what parts of my code aren’t being tested. I have written many IsPrime functions before so it wasn’t too hard to identify the problem. I enjoyed working as a team to find and solve bugs.
What made you happy this week?
The winter storm and the couple of days off we got made me very happy since it gave me some much needed alone time. I also got a lot done which puts me in a good position to be ahead for next week.
What is your pick-of-the-week?
My pick of the week is Taylordle, a fork of the popular Wordle game made for Taylor Swift fans. It’s the same game just with words tailored to the Taylor Swift universe. It’s a good example of forking!
