CS371p Spring 2022 Relena Lai

  1. What did you do this past week? I didn’t get as much work done on Allocator as I hoped during the weekdays because I was busy working on another project in OS. I spent more time on it during the weekend, but I have yet to turn it in. I also missed last week’s exercise which is a bit disappointing since it seemed like it would have been useful for the project.
  2. What’s in your way? I have an OS exam coming up in about a week, so I’m a little stressed about that. I’ve been struggling lately to make time for other classes since I’ve been so preoccupied with studying.
  3. What will you do next week? I’m hoping I can finish up Allocator relatively soon. I’m pushing off studying for my upcoming OS exam for a bit, so I can focus on that.
  4. What did you think of Paper #9: Dependency Inversion Principle? This principle is relatively simple yet I can see how there could be designs that lack this consideration. A lack of abstraction with other classes only directly referencing each other leads to an essentially unmodifiable system. And that’s always frustrating to work on.
  5. What was your experience of DigitsIterator, Iterators, and std::vector? (this question will vary, week to week) I did not attend class the day the DigitsIterator exercise was given, but I watched the lecture on Zoom the day after. I found it quite difficult after trying to implement it myself.
  6. What made you happy this week? I picked up Elden Ring during spring break, and I finally beat the first boss after maybe about thirty hours of playing. I’m not great at games, so that was a real feat for me.
  7. What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week? CSS Peeper is a great tool if you’re into web design. I’m not a big fan of the DevTools CSS inspector since it’s kind of clunky, so this Chrome extension provides a nice GUI to view the properties. Selecting any element on a web page will quickly give you a high-level view of the stylings including the typeface, colors, and object sizing.
