How well do you think the course conveyed those takeaways?

  • when designing algorithms, demand the weakest iterators (e.g. bidirectional vs. random access)
  • when designing containers, provide the strongest iterators (e.g. random access vs bidirectional)
  • build adapters on top of containers, iterators, and functions
  • always look for reuse and symmetry in your…

What did you do this past week?

I launched a fundraising campaign for my student org this week and was very surprised to see we raised over $1000 in our first week! I also made some progress in my research project by successfully running my physical simulation code and testing it with Blender visualization. My iOS classmates…


What did you do this past week?

This past week was the busiest I had this semester. My partner and I finished most of the Darwin project last weekend so we could focus on other things. I had 3 projects due last Thursday, including Darwin. I had an essay for my contemporary issues class where we analyzed…


What did you do this past week?

This past week has been busy for my stats class. We had a quiz, homework and project this week, so I got those out of the way early. In iOS, my group and I finished the design doc, which included mockups and descriptions of every single screen. In my contemporary…


What did you do this past week?

As far as major assignments, I took my statistics exam and turned in Voting. Overall, voting isn’t too bad as long as the I/O and tie breaking are taken care of. I also kicked off a fundraising program for my student org, attended a 2 hour long training session, and…


What did you do this past week?

I got a fair amount done this past week. I did my statistics assignments and took a mock exam, which was the professor’s way of helping us get used to online exam procedures. I also turned in the proposal document for the app we are building in my iOS class…


What did you do this past week?

I finished Collatz, did my iOS assignment, and finished my stats project. My iOS assignment involved using XCode’s storyboard to design the UI for an app, and that part was easy. However, some parts of the storyboard experience seem a little clunky and I struggled getting parts of the UI…


What did you do this past week?

I completed my first iOS homework and got familiar with Swift. I started Collatz and made good progress with the code and tests. Most interestingly, I finished my first Applied Statistics homework in R. I’d say R is a fairly intuitive language and definitely easy to use for statistical calculations…


What did you do this past week?

I wrote my paper for CS349, the contemporary issues class. I also did my assignments for M358K and played around with R in the process. I have never used R before and so far I think it is a really neat language. You can do all sorts of operations, create…


Where did you grow up?

I was born in New Orleans, LA and lived there until my family moved to Katy, TX after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005. I spent the rest of my years growing up in Katy.

What high school did you attend?
