4/11/17  Katas, Grothendieck and Matlab
Personal:

Had to get caught up on work today, and on C++ homework. I have a lab due in a day.

Solved some katas:
Given an array of numbers, sort them in such a manner that all the odd numbers are sorted in ascending order and the even are sorted in descending. If array contains decimals, round them down while checking for odd/even.
Here is my solution:
function sortItOut(array){
// I made two arrays
var odd = []
var even = []
//Looped through the entire array > array
for (var i = 0; i < array.length; i++){
//if values are even, round them down and push them to even array
if (Math.floor(array[i]) % 2 === 0){
even.push(array[i])
}
// if they're odd, push to odd array
else{
odd.push(array[i])
}
}
// double check they are sorted properly (JS needs to be sorted by integer, not string)
even=even.sort((a,b)=>ab);
odd =odd.sort((a,b)=>ab);
// concat both lists and reverse the even while doing so
return(odd.concat(even.reverse()) )
}
Count the number of words in a sentence
function word_count(str) {
var a = str.split(/[ ,]+/);
return(a.length)
}
Return an array whose element of array fall between and include start to end values
function arrayInterval(array, start, end) {
//pushing to arr which is currently empty
var arr = []
// loop through given array, checking if values
// are part of and included in start to finish values
for (var i = 0; i < array.length; i++){
if ((array[i] >= start) && (array[i] <= end)){
//push to new array if satisfy values
arr.push(array[i])
}
}
// return newly filled array
return arr
}
Things I learned today/ interested in:

Directed Acrylic Graphs > Topological Sorting

planning to research and learn about Grothendieck Topology to be caught up for LambdaConf/ Haskell talk

Matlab EdX course begins today on producing logically sound programmes
