  • Dell Chromebook 13 Review

    February 07, 2016

    I am back to school and school means I’m relying on a laptop everyday. The problem is my schedule this semester puts me in class for 8 hours Monday and Thursday with no power outlets in sight. My Thinkpad T430s even with the extra bay battery would not be able to reliably last the day if I needed it. My laptop works great for me except for two things, display and battery life. I have been getting around 4-5 hours of battery life on my Thinkpad and the display is 1600x900 which is below my 1920x1080 minimum preference. I have been looking for a laptop to supplement or replace my Thinkpad for a while now.

    This summer I have been working in an open office environment on the operations team at Onshape. It has been an awesome experience and I have been learning a ton. This has been my first experience working as a software engineer in an office and I have definitely grown and learned a lot. One thing that has impacted me the most at this internship has been the open office space.

  • New Computer

    July 11, 2015

    Started my first desktop build today. I previously had an old desktop but it was slow and not worth using because my laptop would beat it hands down. Now that I’m making money as an intern as a software engineer I figured now was as good as time as any to build a system. I took a trip to Micro Center and got everything I needed. My old desktop had a power supply and hard drive I didn’t need to replace. Everything else went. Even the case. My new desktop isn’t a gaming rig. Just everything I need for programming and other work.

  • Whiteboard

    October 06, 2014

    My RCOS project Whiteboard that was started in the spring semester has finally been released into beta. It is a Django project and has had a lot of work done on it before preparations were made for deployment. What I didn’t realize is as the size of the project grows without attempting to deploy things can become complicated. Django also has a lot of settings to configure. Eventually I got it working with Apache on AWS with S3 storage and an RDS.
