CS371g Summer 2021: Albin Shrestha

What did you do this past week?

During this part week, I have been keeping up with my classes, relaxing, and spending my energy doing things that make me happy. I have been hanging out with friends, playing games, and working on my projects.

What’s in your way?

My sleep and productivity. I was finally getting used to having a good sleep schedule, but then the last two/three days I have not been able to sleep too well. I have been sleeping at like 3–4 AM but somehow I still have so much energy. I feel like I’m eventually going to have a crash, but right now I’m super energetic.

What will you do next week?

Next week I am likely going to be doing the same things I am doing this week, but I have plans to go on a picnic with some of my friends on Friday so that is exciting. We have the whole event planned and have rented out a campsite. Additionally, My partner and I are very close to finishing up with the Integer project so we should be done soon.

If you read it, what did you think of the Paper #5: Continuous Integration?

Continuous Integration is a very good idea and something that will apply greatly to most of us once we are in the workforce. Git and CI pipelines make it very easy to make incremental changes to code and organize goals/objectives.

What were your experience of lambdas, capture by value, and capture by reference? (this question will vary, week to week)

To be honest, lambdas are very confusing and I am going to have to rewatch the lecture again to get a better understanding of them. The examples we did in class: capture by value and capture by reference were useful and gave me a working understanding of lambdas.

What was your experience of function objects, iterator traits, and iterator tags? (this question will vary, week to week)

In the lecture, we learned about how to use function objects to make our code faster compared to when we use a function for a template. We also learned about iterator traits and iterator tags in class which was interesting and provided us with a way to get information about the iterator we are using as well as provide us more details about it.

What made you happy this week?

Reading and philosophy have made me feel calm this week. I have been reading this book called No Longer Human by Japanese author Osamu Dazai and it is very interesting.

What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?

My pick of the week is YouTube videos to supplement the knowledge we learn in class. I watched this video by Derek Banas that helped me get a better understanding of lambdas. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=482weZjwVHY&ab_channel=DerekBanas
