CS373 Spring 2022 Blog #2: Joseph Muffoletto

This past week, I attended lectures, tabled for my organization, (almost) fixed the Mac build for a SAGA lab game, met with my UAM research advisors, and hung out with friends.

I had a pretty rough Friday night, but once I get over that I will get back to business. I also really need to fix the build for the Mac build, because the deadline was set to be over the winter break. Finally, I signed up for the asynchronous roman history course quite late, so I need to complete the assignments that I missed.

Next week, I want to get a head start on all of my projects. I want to pay more attention during lectures, and I want to make sure the first exercise goes well. I also plan to exercise more, as the Rec center will be opening soon.

I thought it was very informative. Despite the oddities of this course, I think there is quite a bit to gain based on the scope of the material and the requirements of the projects.

I have not started Collatz yet, but I did complete it in C++ for Object-Oriented Programming. As such, I do not think there will be many difficulties in transferring the code from C++ to Python. My main concern is getting comfortable with the libraries, but algorithmically the problem should be straightforward.

I got to spend quality time with our sister organization. I had not really developed a relationship with them the past semester, so it was nice to get to know them better. I also had some interesting conversations with students on speedway while I was tabling.
