CS373 Spring 2021: Week 11

What did you do this past week?

This past week, I mainly worked on getting filtering and sorting working! My group is implementing filtering, sorting, and pagination in the backend, so I got the filter and sort API calls working and have started working on the frontend aspect.

What’s in your way?

Right now, there’s not really anything in my way! This phase of the project is going well, and I feel confident that I can finish up my part in the next day or two.

What will you do next week?

This upcoming week, I am going to focus on filtering and sorting, and updating the Postman unit tests. Hopefully, my group and I can get this phase done early, because last time we cut it really close with our deployment.

If you read it, what did you think of the Why getter and setter methods are evil?

I thought it was a really interesting read! I’ve never thought about the negative implications of getter and setter methods, so it was definitely educational and made me re-evaluate the way that I write my code.

What was your experience of select, project, cross join and theta join?

I don’t really have any experience with relational databases/algebra at all, but I thought that these concepts were pretty easy to understand!

What made you happy this week?

I was able to hang out with some friends that I haven’t seen a lot this year, so that was really nice! I also got to spend a lot of time outside and enjoy this weather, which was really refreshing!

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

On Macbooks, if you have a chunk of code that has been indented too far to the right, you can just highlight it and press Shift+Tab to move it to the left!
