What did you do this past week?
This past week I completed the project on the first day of the week, Sunday. Other than that, I went to class and did homework and readings as usual. I did accidentally attempt to attend the class in real life on Wednesday because I did not pay enough attention to the Ed Discussion, but I still got to attend class that day online. I just attended class at the university on my laptop.

This past week, I got an email that someone in one of my classes tested positive for Covid-19 in the first week of class, so the professor of that class went to hybrid for the rest of the week. That was probably the worst class to have that happen in due to the fact that the class was packed tightly with nearly 60 students.

How well do you think the course conveyed those takeaways?

This course better conveyed the more technical takeaways through the examples and concepts shown in the lectures. Many of the other takeaways that were listed were already in my standards when it comes to coding. However, the ones I did actually learn more about were very understandable upon taking the course. For example, the takeaways of designing around iterators were very intuitive. …

What did you do this past week?

This past week I had my last week for my ethics course. We ended the class with a presentation and a noncumulative final. For the presentation, we were put into groups and had to present a product to alleviate a technological ethical dilemma. I thought my group was a little bit special because our group actually showed pseudocode in a git repo. For this class, my project partner and I worked through Integer for too long. We predicted that it would take 15 hours to complete when it actually took 30 hours.

My partner and I completed the Netflix project. The caches that the other students created with boost serialization were helpful in simplifying the access of the information that was available to the students.
