I've been absolutely flooded with school. It's stimulating, exciting, and exhausting.
My biggest frustration right now is the "Data Structures and Algorithms" class I'm taking -- it's really just a Java 201 class. While I'm happy to be learning new data structures, it's frustrating to be stuck writing Java for problems that I could solve in minutes with Common Lisp. One "gentle" month of CL has spoiled me.
The problem with Java -- and, if you believe its proponents, the most important feature -- is its rigid, extensive structure. I'm reserving judgement on the language for now. After all, it's not like I'm maintaining thousands of lines of code in a production system with other software engineers. But there's no denying that the structure gets in the way of debugging. In Common Lisp, with the REPL (or even without it) I can instantly test a function without worrying about every detail of its location, permissions, and the rest of the program. In Java, you have to constantly modify and manipulate a "driver" class to test stuff. The textbook also reads annoyingly like an ad. I'm 12 chapters in, do they really think I need to be reminded every two pages of the benefits of Java and the Object-Oriented Paradigm??
I learned basic LaTex for "Foundations of Computer Science". It wasn't complicated -- I probably should have known it already.
My "Ethics in the Computer Age" class is also great. It's stimulating, hard, and probably will be the subject of another log.
