Programming Concepts

I’m out of my first exam and I’m feeling good. It was as long as my midterm. It’s quite annoying when profs do that, and they make the final worth a whopping 40% of the toal grade. Grrr. Either way, it went by too fast and felt to easy, which means only one thing: I got C. Oh well. At least I found the two derivation trees I needed for one of the questions! It was hiding, but alas, I found him! Victory is mine!

I was actually getting a little nervous on that question: “given a Context Free Grammar, show it is ambigous.” It took me a good quarter or more of the entire time I took on the exam. I was thinking that perhaps my only chance was to bring up a theorem: “If a tree has more then two left most derivations, then it is ambigous.” Yeah, computer science is very much a subset of Math.

I have one more exam today: Advanced Windows Programming. Ooooh. Just saying those words sends a chill through my body, it’s like I’m actually a big shot programmer. Hopefully I’ll come out alright.
