CS 373 Blog #12 Fall 2021
What did you do this past week?
This past week, I finished up a project with my group for my other CS course and worked on the project for this class. I also got to come home early from school on Thursday due to my music class being canceled for that day due to the professor having to go to a meeting.
What’s in your way?
The end is nigh.
What will you do next week?
This upcoming week, I will be working as much as possible to help my group for this class to finish the project and even more for my other CS course, which we have a final project to do in that class. Additionally, I will be attending the last lectures for my music class. The rest of that class will be delegated to a final project for that class, which I hope will not be too difficult. I may also start studying for my final for my Japanese class, which, while not cumulative, has been described by the professor as the hardest exam for the class.
If you read it, what did you think of the Paper #12: More Getters and Setters?
This paper was more elucidating on the ways to get rid of getters and setters by providing more concrete examples for how to remove them, with reasonings attached to them.
What was your experience of cross join, theta join, natural join, and SQL? (this question will vary, week to week)
Cross join, theta join, and natural join seemed like simple concepts to grasp. It was interesting to see how theta join and natural join can devolve to cross join under certain conditions. I hope other relational algebra expressions will be just as easy to understand.
SQL seemed very simple to work with. Just having headers with strings of commands attached to them seemed not too tough to understand. However, that could just be because we are just starting to look into it.
What made you happy this week?
The end is nigh.
What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
NFTs seem to be all the rage these days on the internet. People seem to have too much money than what to do with by buying them with thousands of dollars. So my tip-of-the-week is to completely avoid them. Unlike my previous picks/tips, I am not suggesting a piece of technology or software. In fact, I am saying the opposite; avoid this piece of technology. There have been many people that have been scammed by them, and they do not feel as though they have any value, being virtual goods. Tell people less knowledgeable about the web not to get involved with them.
