CS373 Spring 2021 Blog #8: Regina Chen
Week of 8 Mar — 14 Mar
What did you do this past week?
This week was pretty busy for me since I had exams and assignments due for other classes. I mainly studied for those, but was able to have a few meetings with my groupmates to map out and split the issues for phase II.
What’s in your way?
As I stated above, I was focused on other classes this week and did not spend as much time as I would have liked to for phase II. I had a little bit of catching up to do, but am glad to feel like I am somewhat back on track with things after my exams. Currently, my groupmates and I are working on pagination and dealing with some type errors.
What will you do next week?
I plan on finishing up on creating a dynamic routing to the different instances from the model pages. Since it’s also spring break and I am back home, I plan to catch up and spend some time with my family and get some rest.
If you read it, what did you think of the Liskov Substitution Principle?
I feel like this was a nice article following last week’s reading on the Open Closed Principle, since they are related. I really liked the author’s example using the square and rectangle, and it definitely made me aware to think about the possible errors in the future if I were to override methods for specific cases.
What was your experience of iteration, comprehensions, generators, and digits iterator?
I’ve had some experience with iterators and generators in Python, but never fully learned about how they work and their differences. As for digits iterator, my team and I got most of it fairly quickly, but only ran into failed test cases due to using ‘/’ instead of ‘//’. We were able to pass the cases after fixing that though and had a good laugh about it afterwards.
What made you happy this week?
Doing well on my exams and going back home to see my family made me happy this week!
What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
My tip-of-the-week is to use ctrl+K, ctrl+F to format a section of code, and ctrl+K, ctrl+D to format an entire document!
