Studies

I stayed in Haifa last weekend, so Eran and I can work on preparing the Lab 3 assignments in advance. It took us a very long time to solve anything, but we managed to finish the "Image Processing" and part of the "Computer Networks" experiments. Right now, Passover started, so I have till the Sunday after the next.

Studies were quite interesting the past two weeks. In "Computer Graphics" the lecturer gave us an overview of the book "The Psychology of Everyday Things" so we can design better UIs. My partner for "Design and Analysis of Algorithms" and I sat on the first assignment and managed to finish it. (I consulted the T.A. regarding one exercise there).

Solving the "SICP 2" exercises on streams proved to be quite enlightening. There are many tricks that can be done efficiently using such delayed lists.

The New Project

Roy and I's new project has to do with writing a web-based front-end for viewing and managing Technion Seminars. Roy and I spent some time writing a SPEC and site workflows of it. Our supervisor (who also happens to be the lab engineer and a T.A. in some courses), many times did not have too much time to meet with us. (sometimes despite the fact that we scheduled with him in advance) Hopefully, we won't rely on him too much as we start working on the project.
