I’m working on a little project around coursework at this moment using thread pools and a task-based system. Interesting work thought it does require constant vigilance otherwise the program explodes into tiny pieces of fiery pain. But still, interesting. I’ll do a proper right-up of what I’m trying later, including how I’m trying to make the rendering parallel and capable of scaling to N cores.
For now, I want to brag.
This is the grading for one of my courseworks, a Toy FAT-based File System written in Java. Not the last box, A**. That was for my extension to the existing system. I’m reasonably sure this is my lecturer being ‘cute’ because…well, I don’t think you can get an A** in a university coursework. Either way, total grade for coursework: A*.
