This was the third week of using Unix for a class related project, and so far I am liking it. Even though the interface is similar to windows office or XP, its the terminal that makes using Ubuntu good. Like I mentioned earlier, in the Unix Command School assignment, the commands are pretty simple and intuitive. While I like the terminal part of Ubuntu, I don’t know how to decrease the screen brightness on Ubuntu. This is destroying the battery life of my laptop. My plan is get it fixed sometime over this weekend.
As far the second assignment goes, it wasn’t too difficult. I had prior experience in python which made me finish the project quickly. It initially took some time to recall python syntax. I thought that the hardest part of this assignment was uploading .py files to github. I was regretting uploading it after realizing that our programs can be seen by anyone with a Github account. Regardless, I realized that if used correctly, this could be an excellent source to share code.
In addition to this, I had my first project due for ECE 3574. The project required us to get command line arguments and carry out some functions in it. The main focus of the project was managing a database. These are my updates with Ubuntu for this week, and check back next week for more.
