What did you do this past week?
Last week, I was able to turn a project (for work), from 3 months, to only 2 weeks behind schedule. It felt nice being able to deliver something nice and functional.
What’s in your way?
Nothing at the moment
What will you do next week?
Next week, I will be doing more work, starting with the job related projects, and hopefully ending up with a bit of the work done for the next IDB project. Next week I am also heading to Houston for thanksgiving. It will be pretty much the only time of the year when the whole family can be together. My mom is really excited about that.
What’s my experience of the class?
Great so far.
What’s my pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
Last week Microsoft introduced Visual Studio Live Share. It is a component of Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code that allows people across the world to pair program more effectively. From your project’s workspace, you can start a sharing session that provides you with a link. When your partner supplies that link to their VS or VS Code program, a sharing session will start. You and the partner can both edit code at the same time (which you can’t do through just screen sharing). What I find the most interesting though is the ability to share a debugging session where both you and the partner can have access to the same debugging context (including locals, watched variables, and breakpoints). If this project matures a bit more, I can see a lot of potential in online coding classes where the instructor can help debug the students’ code live.
Summary of my experience This semester has gone by pretty fast! I’ve learned a lot of Python, React, SQL, and got a refresher on some of the design patterns I learned from Software Design with Read more…
