What did you do this past week?

For this past week, I worked with my partner to finish our Darwin project. We got to finish earlier than expected so I got to spend the week finishing up my other projects early as well.

What’s in your way?

Now that the fifth project has been announced, I guess you could say that Life is in my way. After reading through the specification, I’m probably going to need another read and a lecture to fully grasp what’s going on.

What will you do next week?

For next week, I’m going to attend lecture and learn more about the Life project. Hopefully, I will understand enough to get started but first, I need to look for a partner.

If you read it, what did you think of the More getters and setters?

I learned a lot from the first article on getters and setters, and this new article brings more insight and examples on how to reduce the use of getters and setters.

What was your experience of sequence containers, container adapters, and associative containers? (this question will vary, week to week)

I have experience having to write a Deque for Downing’s Generic Programming course, and I have to say, it was a pain. This underlying 2D array was always a mess to manage, and some of the hardest parts that I could remember were working on all of different types of Deque constructors as well as the insert and erase methods.

What made you happy this week?

I finally have a weekend where I don’t have any projects or assignments due the following week, so I’ve been using that time catching up on sleep and getting much needed relaxation.
