CS371g Summer 2021 Week 7: Andrew Li

What did you do this past week?

This past week, I have been working on the Deque project mostly. This project feels like it’s been harder than the previous ones, mainly because of just understanding how to implement it properly.

What’s in your way?

My partner and I have been struggling quite a bit on the Deque project, and probably will need to use a token if there is no extension. I feel like the time we spend working on it is mostly either trying to figure out how the Deque is supposed to work, or tracking down the bugs in the code.

What will you do next week?

Next week, I will be trying to finish up the Deque project, as we are not done with it yet. Hopefully we will be able to complete it with an extra 2 days.

If you read it, what did you think of the Paper #7: What Happens to Us?

I read the paper, and I think that it was honestly kind of depressing. The fact that so many people act in such a terrible way towards women is so unbelievable. While I’m sure that there are also a lot of good interactions as well, it doesn’t mean that these types of despicable behaviors can be ignored.

What was your experience of vector, allocator, and deque? (this question will vary, week to week)

I had some experience with vector from previous projects, but none whatsoever with deque, which made the project quite hard.

What made you happy this week?

This week, I went to an arcade with friends, which was a lot of fun!

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

My pick of the week is to write many tests before coding. We did not write many tests, and so debugging was much harder than it had to be.
