Technology is the future is what a lot of people say. Being in this environment around all of these amazing people and technology, I can actually see the strides that technology is taking and some of the problems that the tech is solving or optimizing.
Monday: Today is a great start to the week. We started with our C++ class, although I have experience in this language, it was great to see the language broken down and discussed at its roots. Hearing all of the things that you can do with C++ has me looking forward to my future in using code to solve problems. Today I learned just how powerful the language of C++ is and I was able to receive a few exact examples on how I can utilize my knowledge of C++ in the future.I have come to understand that technology is huge and can assist just about anything I can think of.
Tuesday: Today has been a little different, it seems to be moving at a different pace. Today was our first lunch and lecture, at time spent munching on some food and much needed knowledge. Our speaker for today Eliot Winer. He presentation was great and he provided a large amount of relatable information. Many questions were asked and some great dialogue was stirred up, helping us make inferences and analysis about our own education and professional paths and futures.
Wednesday: Hump day! Back at it again with the C++ crash course. We learned much more today and you can start to see why C++ is such a challenging language. We haven’t had much experience with our research this week but my group has planned to meet in the lab later today… exiting😊. Hopefully a great experience in the lab will be a nice way to get over the “hump” or Wednesday as this day is referred to by many.

Thursday: longgg😶 Today has been different, the schedule was adjusted a bit but our times did not change. Instead of a packed day, we were pretty much here on the computers and in the lunch and lecture. It was mainly idle, time to catch upon things if you are behind, so I guess it was helpful. I wonder what tomorrow has in store.

Friday: C++! Today was good, I was able to improve some of my C++ skill. I now have a better understanding of classes and Inheritance, and in what real-world problems they would be used.We have a group meeting later so thats good. We dont really get to meet with our research projects much durning the day so it will be nice to get in the lab and get some data!
