I worked on it for a couple hours today (while watching the Treehouse lessons), and I’ve come up with a really simple layout. It’s probably going to change a lot in the next few days, (or maybe weeks, depending on schoolwork) but I thought I would show you.
Long story short, I’m really excited for what to come. I am eager to learn more and more about Computer Science, and I can’t wait to gain experience in the industry. In my personal statement for Brown, I wrote about how “computers are intriguing creatures. They stubbornly abide by my every command, making me feel invincible, yet, rather hopeless when I fail to take complete control. The reason I never give up on them is because I realize how powerful and influential they are in our world.” Just recently I heard rumors about Apple developing the ‘iWatch’. I’m not exactly sure what they are capable of, but rumors say Apple is hiring physiologists for the iWatch. I can’t even imagine what life would be like ten years down the road.
On a rather similar note, on Saturday, I attended the Women Engineers Code (WECode) conference at Harvard University. There were probably about 300 attendees in total, most of whom were women. It was the first WECode conference, and I thought it was really well ran. I really liked how the focus is more on bonding between engineers, instead of just having the night/day away. I personally find Hackathons really intimidating.
Anyways, as you have probably noticed, I am basically just really excited. Excited about a lot of things. I have a project for my AI class due this Thursday, and we are supposed to generate paths for Pacman. Next Tuesday, I have a project called ‘Stars’ due for my Software Engineering class. We are supposed to implement a k-d tree, which I have never heard before. I will most likely have my first Photography class tomorrow (although I think it might be off due to President’s day).
It’s time to go to bed now.
