What did you do this past week?

This past week, I was kind of able to cool off and focus on other classes. Since the 4th phase doesn’t seem to be as much work it’s been pretty nice being able to catch up on other work I have going on.

What’s in your way?

The next two weeks for me are pretty busy since it’s the end of the semester. I have loads of tests and assignments coming up so I just hope that I can be ready for everything and get it done well.

What will you do next week?

Next week, my team will put together the presentation for phase IV. We will most likely be doing the video so looking forward to working on that. There’s also some refactoring and other things that need to be done as well.

If you read it, what did you think of the What Happens to Us Does Not Happen to Most of You?

I’m glad I got to read the paper. It served as another reminder that we need to cultivate a safe and welcoming environment for women not just through our words but through our actions as well. Being an ally is very important.

What was your experience of joins and refactoring? (this question will vary, week to week)

I think it’s a good skill to have and use. It reminded me a lot of 314 when you are trying to pretty up the code and make sure the style is nice and efficient.

What made you happy this week?

I got to be outside and enjoy some of the great weather we’ve been having. I love playing sports so doing that was really fun and exciting.

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

I’ve recently been looking into some online courses just to see if I could take something that would interest me in the CS area and I found some potential great ones on Udemy. I recommend this website if you are looking for educational videos on almost any subject because they have a ton!
