Spring break was awesome. I finished almost all the work that I had been assigned and got to play some Black Ops, watch new television shows and eat some amazing food. I can’t wait to head back there during Summer!
The CS 241 programming assignment, where one has to implement malloc + realloc + free, was an amazing learning experience. Mentally going over my CS 225 notes and thinking abou which data structures to use, making small changes in my C code to optimize it for slightly better performance, finding the right balance between memory utilization and speed; I learnt a lot over the course of the assigment and it was also a lot of fun.
In other news, I’m now an Undergraduate Research Assistant for the Locus group! I’m working with my friend Onur to develop web applications for this project. So far, we’ve written code in Python(which I’m pretty sure we’ll have to port over to php) and we’ll be starting the next phase of development soon.
