First, my team and I went to a really overpriced dining hall at Iowa State- I will never make that choice again. It was a foolhardy decision, and I did not get to eat $13 worth of Iowa State Dining Dollar’s- all I have left from this excursion is a single banana.
The first programming lecture was very simple, but then again, it was the first one. I’m waiting for the programming problems to ramp up in difficulty and for me to get lost. I also looked at some of the documentation for Tello Drones and the Go language- I think it’s ridiculous, the small syntax variations between each language. Go uses := to initialize and set a variable to a value. It doesn’t need to be this way.
The Drones team talked to Dr. Stone today- he’s such a gregarious individual. I feel like I have to watch the questions I ask around him, though, since every question results in 5 minutes of explanation. At least he’s extremely open to being helpful. I think that the literature review is going to be somewhat of a slog, but it’s important work.
I’m thinking less about the schoolwork that I have to accomplish; for the most part, my grade has been cast (with the exception of the memory allocation lab). After that, I’m pretty much free. I can’t wait to devote most of my time to this program (and sleep).
