CS371p Fall 2021 Week 7: Andrew Li

  1. What did you do this past week?
    This last week, I didn’t work on this class, because I was working on a game for my Game Tech class. We were pretty tight on time, so I had to focus most of time on that project instead.
  2. What’s in your way?
    Right now, I am back to being slammed with projects. There’s a lot of work right now, but I think I can get through.
  3. What will you do next week?
    Next week I will do the project for this class. Hopefully my experience with the heap from OS will make this project easier, and it won’t be too much of a headache like OS was.
  4. If you read it, what did you think of the Paper #8: Liskov Substitution Principle?
    I read the paper, and I was left a little bit confused. For the square/rectangle question, I was not sure what the right solution would be. My assumption was that there should be some sort of quadrilateral class that both square and rectangle are derived from, like the last example. However, I am not sure if that would be correct.
  5. What was your experience of arrays and allocator? (this question will vary, week to week)
    I have had experience with arrays and allocator before, although much less experience with allocators. I’ve only worked with them a little bit before, and that was in another class I had with Professor Downing.
  6. What made you happy this week?
  7. What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
    My tip of the week is to look up your issues. For my last project, I struggled so long working on bugs, until I gave up and looked it up, and found the solution right away. Don’t be afraid to use google! Just be sure not to copy code though.
