What did you do this past week?
I didn’t do much for this class during the past week. Mostly, I tried to stay up to date with the class material, since the project was only recently released.
What’s in your way?
There’s nothing in my way! I’m able to access my GitLab account, and the class GitLab repository, so I have all the necessary materials to start working on the Collatz project.
What will you do next week?
My plan is to go ahead and finish the Collatz project. I actually took object oriented programming with Professor Downing last semester, so I’m familiar with the project and the workflow items. The main hurdle for me is that I’m completely new to Python, so I’ll probably run into a few of those kinds of issues.
If you read it, what did you think of the makefile?
I thought the makefile was pretty easy to understand, since I have experience reading and editing them from OOP last semester.
What was your experience of Docker? (this question will vary, week to week)
I have not tried using Docker. I always go ahead and ssh into the CS lab machines for all my CS projects, so I haven’t experimented with Docker yet. Hopefully, I’ll figure it out when I start the project.
What was your experience of assertions? (this question will vary, week to week)
I understand why they’re not ideal for unit testing or user error.
