What did you do this past week?

This past week, I finished Collatz and was mostly focused on projects for my other classes.

What’s in your way?

Right now, I’m just waiting eagerly for the next project to drop.

What will you do next week?

Try and get ahead on my assignments and meet with my group for this class.

What did you think of Paper #4: Pair Programming?

I agreed with most of the points stated in the paper. I definitely believe pair programming is helpful- if nothing else, rubber ducking with another pair of ears is always useful for organizing thoughts and ideas.

What was your experience with exceptions and types?

I always think typing in Python is so interesting. One of the things I didn’t know about was the distinction between tuples and ints when using parentheses. I’d always wondered why that comma had to be there.

What made you happy this week?

I went out to a comedy show the other night! It was super relaxed and easy going, and makes me want to try it sometime too.

What is your tip-of-the-week?

My tip of the week is the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). While not relevant at all to this class, HDFS is a really neat abstraction when needing to store massive amounts of data across multiple machines. It’s commonly used for data storage in cloud computing.
