CS371p Fall 2021 Week 3: Kevin Chen
- What did you do this past week?
I did some homework for other classes, and setup my development environment. Turns out VSCode + WSL + Docker works a lot better than I thought it would.
2 .What’s in your way?
Finishing collatz, currently passing the first 2 tests, need to optimize my solution more
3. What will you do next week?
I have my first exam on Wednesday, so I need to study and prepare for that. Other than that, I have to finish Collatz by Monday and maybe start work on Project 2.
4.If you read it, what did you think of the Paper #3: Continuos Integration?
CI is an important topic and a very widespread practice in the industry. I have had previous experience with this concept so the paper didn’t really tell me anything I didn’t understand before.
5.What was your experience of IsPrime and Collatz optimizations? (this question will vary, week to week)
I went over these optimizations my last semester in SWE. Doing them in C++ is not harder.
6. What made you happy this week?
Celebrating my friends birthday at Rose Room. He managed to get a section and we had a great time.
7.What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
In my previous blog post, I had said I was going to ssh into the machines. However, I now use Docker + WSL. There is an extension on VSCode for Docker which I use to run my containers. I was confused at first why Docker was showing up as not installed, but it was because I wasn’t opening Docker in Windows Subsystem Linux. After using WSL, I was very easily able to run the Docker container.
