Stuff I’ve been doingPosted: October 13, 2011
Nothing I especially want or need to say, but I figured I should record what I’ve been up to lately.
Had some fun with Codesprint. I solved a grand total of one question – the easiest one, which was a bit of a blow to my pride. Apparently that’s enough to qualify somebody to apply for a job now, but I don’t think I will. What I think I will do is practice these types of questions a bit more and familiarize myself better with common algorithms. Maybe I’ll try to solve a project euler problem each day or something.
School has been decent – it’s nice because I still have a lot of time to work on deficiencies that I have as a programmer in the large amounts of free time I have.
Some kids tried to rob me a couple of weeks ago, and now I’m quite nervous about walking around at night. But there are a lot of great opportunities to meet other nerds at night, such as the Python meetup group in Boston. If this keeps up, I might try to move to a better neighbourhood.
Oh, I signed up for the AI course that Stanford is currently offering. It’s free and obviously a very interesting subject.
I’ve taken to reading more open source code lately as practice. Cscope is great for this, I am finding.
Still reading up on OpenGL. Homework and Codesprint took time away from it, but I should have plenty of time in the next week.
