What did you do this past week?
This past week I spent a lot of time working on phase 3 of the project. The testing and pipeline integration was actually a pretty formidable task as it took a lot more time than expected. This was a very cumbersome task and it took a lot of time and ended up being challenging. I spent a lot of time working on refining the front end test portion. Learning new technologies and frameworks for testing was a valuable experience and was an integral part of finishing this phase.
What’s in your way?
Not much is in way, my schedule cleared up considerably after finishing a lot of my exams as well. This allowed for me to be able to spend some time with some relatives and friends in town that are visiting. Starting phase 4 will be difficult as the brainstorming phase and whatnot will always be difficult however we are getting a head start.
What will you do next week?
Next week I plan on working on phase 4 of the project. Getting a head start is important because working on the presentation and refining aspect for this phase is gonna be a very cumbersome and difficult task. This means that we need to plan out our time very well and get ahead on our work.
If you read it, what did you think of the More getters and setters?
I thought that it was a good extension on the previous article and that it was a very interesting read. I thought last weeks article was very interesting and that this week was a good continuation. I think that this is a very interesting and much deeper topic than i had originally imagined.
What was your experience of SQL? (this question will vary, week to week)
SQL was very interesting. I had used sql before for an app i had built so I used SQL to make my database of contacts. Learning more about the different queries and their purposes was a very interesting topic and it helped me gain a better understanding of back end.
What made you happy this week?
I was very happy to see my friends visiting from out of town. With covid and everything, we were unable to meet for an extended period of time but we were happy to meet up now that we are vaccinated and enjoy some time together.
What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
My tip of the week is to make sure that you get vaccinated as soon as possible. Austin regional clinic as well as UT have been giving out many appointments and securing one is not that difficult so getting that should be a priority for all students
