What did you do this past week?

This past week I started working on and finished the Darwin project for this class and was luckily able to finish my computer security and neural nets programming assignments with plenty of free time to spare, something that I haven’t had since September.

What’s in your way?

Right now, not much really. I’ve finally gotten some free time to pursue some of my other hobbies / interests.

What will you do next week?

This next week I’m aiming to get started on the next set of labs I’ll have for each of my…


What did you do this past week?

This past week I started working on and finished the Darwin project for this class, began working on my neural networks lab, and started working with my partner on our computer network security lab

What’s in your way?

This next week I’m aiming to complete all of the labs I am currently working on. I’m fairly confident that the Darwin assignment and my neural networks lab will be relatively straightforward but my network security project has been a big pain to make any progress in.

What will you do next week?

This next…


What did you do this past week?

This past week has been my busiest yet. I finished the second and third project for my computer network security and neural networks class respectively. I also took a midterm for this class and have a takehome midterm for my computer network security class that I’ve been studying for. Unfortunately, I did not have much free time to do much of anything else and I’m hoping that I can relax a bit next week

What’s in your way?

The most pressing thing in my way currently would be the take-home midterm I need…


What did you do this past week?

This past week has been a bit of a grind. I have two exams for two separate classes and I’m feeling the effects of remote learning. Unfortunately, I did not have much free time to do much of anything else and I’m hoping that I can relax a bit this next week

What’s in your way?

The most pressing thing in my way currently would be my 2 midterms on Wednesday. …


What did you do this past week?

This past week I started working on the allocator assignment for this class and continued to work on my next projects for my Neural Networks and Computer Network Security classes. I was able to complete the neural networks however I’m still working on the Computer Network Security project due to having to deal with a somewhat lacking project specification.

What’s in your way?

I’m a bit behind on the material for my other two computer science classes and I’m hoping to catch up this weekend. …


What did you do this past week?

This past week I finished up the voting assignment for this class and began working on my next projects for my Neural Networks and Computer Network Security classes. The Neural Networks project involves writing a convolutional neural network for image classification and the Computer Network Security project involves implementing the TLS protocol.

What did you do this past week?

In terms of school, I spent most of my time working on the Voting project for this class. I currently have a naive implementation done but am still running into some issues with the Hackerrank tests that are taking a lot of time to debug.

What’s in your way?

I need to figure out what I’m doing wrong to pass the third test on the hackerrank. Other than that I need to start working on the second wave of assignments for all my other classes

What will you do next week?

I will…


What did you do this past week?

I spent this past week mostly getting back into the flow of having classes. Most of my time was spent working on the Collatz project for this class and my first project for my Neural Networks class.

What’s in your way?

I have a project that I need to complete for my Computer Networks and Privacy class that I haven’t started. One thing that I really appreciate about Professor Downing’s projects are that the deliverables and workflow are all very clear with little room for ambiguity. …


What did you do this past week?

I spent this past week mostly getting back into the flow of having classes. I also spent a bit of time getting started on the first assignments for this class and my other two computer science classes, neural networks and computer network and security.

What’s in your way?

As mentioned above, I’ve currently working on the first homework assignments for my other two classes. Unfortunately, I am not too familiar or comfortable with the material in those classes yet so I’m still figuring out what’s going on in those classes.

What will you…
