This week I’m really busy with my final project and was already wondering when I would find the time to write a blog post. But as fate has it, the internet is down in hipster central! It’s 2pm in the afternoon and we can’t really do anything without internet access. So I’ve decided to use the time to write a post.
This week is what they call “computer science week”. The theory is that each of us students is preparing a lesson on a computer science topic and then teaching it to the others. Lessons in the mornings and project time in the afternoons and evenings.
Others who didn’t choose their own topics talked about ways of sorting data, strategies regarding which tasks to execute in which order, how to handle fluctuating volumes of data and quantum computing. I found some of these theories and strategies quite interesting and would like to learn more about it – ideally in a popular science type of format. Is there like a Freakonomics podcast for computer science? Freakomputer science? I need to research this.
Tomorrow will be our very last lesson! It’s only our penultimate week but next week we’ll be focussing on our final project the whole time, so no more lessons.
Right, internet is still down*. Back to our hangman game.
* If you’re wondering how I published this post without internet… I didn’t. I wrote it during the painful two hours of no internet and then published it later when I got home.
