Hey y'all! This past week has been quite eventful for our class. We started off the week finding out that Professor Downing (PD)'s class website had been hacked. My first question was "why?". The website was full of Python code that would probably be of no use to someone who already knows how to hack a website (-_-). Maybe it was a joke but we're so far into the semester that little hick-ups like that aren't funny anymore.
Thankfully, PD was able to create a new class website using GitHub. Since he had his original code on GitHub anyway, I'm assuming it was a much smoother transition than if he had to rebuild the site using another website generator/host. I think it's really nice that GitHub has such a feature. Specifically called 'GitHub Pages', the feature allows users to 'host websites directly from their GitHub repos'.

As far as class content goes, this week we were introduced to our fifth and final project, discussed Python class inheritance, and touched on binary search. I'm excited for this fifth project. The algorithm set-up is very similar to the previous project but the interface will differ a bit since we are allowed to use class inheritance. I haven't found a partner as yet but I'm really looking forward to working with one!
Test 2 is 17 days away! I had to double-check my math on that. Seventeen days y'all. SEVEN-TEEN.
Six quizzes, one project, one exam, and seventeen days until CS 313E will be over! It's a bittersweet thing to think about...atleast for me.
