Coding reflection

Today was our first day of coding. The biggest lesson that I learned was that there is a difference between \n and /n. I found this out because the \n is supposed to make the lines go down but everything was still going across. I also learned how to navigate the CS50 dashboard. At first it was really scary and complicated looking, but the more I used it, it seemed to become easier and easier. It is not the most streamline interface but it's okay.

Interviewing My Mom

What computing innovation has had the most impact on your life? In what ways has your life been affected?

"I think texting has had the largest impact on my life. I really do not like talking on the phone. I enjoy the simplicity of being able to with someone whether it be a question or just a greeting without it turning into a lengthy conversation. Texting offers me the option to respond right away or when I have the time to do so. I also like being able to 'talk' to multiple people at once as well. It is so much easier to plan events or a get together when a number of people can be a part of a conversation and can add their input at their leisure. So, I would definitely say that texting has had the biggest and most important affect on my life." 

This answer is a lot similar to mine because we both focused on how our innovation makes communication easier for us. If I ever want to talk to my friends we just hop on Xbox, get in a party together and usually talk for hours.

Innovations With An Impact On My Life

One innovation that had the biggest impact in my life was most definitely my Xbox.  I spend a lot of my free time I have spent playing Xbox and some of my strongest friendships have been formed over the common interest. As pathetic as it sounds, Xbox has been a major part of my life since I got my first Xbox-360 in 4th grade and dating back to watching my brothers play on their original Xbox and being able to bond with them over that.
