FYP Innovation Award

It seems to  be a pretty cool summary to my undergraduate study.  I would like to take this opportunity to give BIG THANKS to my supervisor Prof Teo Yong Meng and Dr Marian Mihailescu.

I won’t say this FYP is a hard journey since it does not challenge me too much (compared to Huntville) , but it still takes a huge amount of efforts to reach where we are now.  What I do is to rework the SkyBoxz prototype with better engineering design and get it work as expected.  There is a LOT of scolding along the way but it turns out to be a good motivation for me to deliver something awesome. There are many times when I want to get rid of this project because I am scared by the enormous amount of details to handle, especially related to web programming.  But I went through it and make my delivery.

 ” It simply works and I wrote every single line of code for what you see right now”.

This is the proudest moment when I made the presentation yesterday. And it is a game changer in my way.

There had been a few review sessions between Prof Teo and me, each one tooks hours to finish. I did not appreciate it at the very beginning but eventually the slides indeed moved to the right direction.  I always prevail in the discussion with Meii on her slides but cannot make it on my own :-D  Sounds hilarious.

Anyway, let’s finish STRONG.

做个决定

上周是个分水岭。

一直打算去CDMP,所以也没有想太多,拿了好多数学课,也就慢慢觉得应该顺其自然走以前偶然看到的路,虽然我持续性怀疑这个东西的重要性,并且一直相信这个东西不是那么的重要,就像在上上篇blog里面写的那样,planning is guessing,计划即猜测,计划可以改变,现实不可以改变。

最早参加CDMP的初衷是给毕业之后找个事情做,多拿两个没用的硕士学位不是什么坏事,反正有合约,晚一年什么的也不要紧,后来又觉得,就当是出去交换,出去看看。

这个听起来不错的主意,我渐渐觉得不对了,因为那不是我想做的事情。尽管如此,我还是去考了GRE,还是去学了一大堆数学课,内心中总没有坚强到去改变现状。

学了好多可以用来做决定的算法( decision making methodology) ,可我却不能写个程序放在我的身上去执行。

然后是一个意外的机会,突然让我觉得,这个东西其实并不复杂,不需要什么复杂的算法,无论怎么执行这个过程,结果都是一样的。

所以,我不去GT读书了,毕业后加入Garena,希望可以在那里学到些东西。
