    Unittests and merging branches :( Getting close to merging a huge feature branch with master, it will be a huge relief when we get that landed.

        It's a medical imaging web app. It distinguishes itself from most current software by taking raw MRI data and constructing 3d video that is manipulatable by leveraging AWS it avoids the need for servers with strong GPUs in each hospital to do so and instead we provide them with a small server that handle stripping protected health information when leaving their network and reapplying it when coming back. It also uses ML to segment out the ventricles of the heart and detect cancer in the liver and lung (I work on the Oncology module).

            We already support CT. Ultrasound is on the roadmap I imagine but we're taking a really pragmatic approach to what we support. E.g., we started with cardiac blood flow because that was an incredibly difficult problem, then we moved onto oncology of the liver and lung because those are where the most common or most lethal if not caught early cancers tend to be. Once those are locked down we will move to the next thing, I'm not sure what that may be yet.

            I work mostly on the user interface and middleware, we have data scientists and mathematicians that work on the really complicated stuff. It's mostly fun to work on but I joined the company during a time when we're moving from a start up to small business. We've only recently split off into teams rather than everyone works on everything and it's not quite understood that refactoring one aspect the codebase has serious consequences to another teams work yet. Wrangling in the cowboy coders that have never been through the transition before is a chore but we're getting there.

    Last full week of school for me! Basically just a bunch of BS that teachers are making us do so that we have a reason to come into class. Personally, i'm looking to send out a bunch of job applications, and prepping for doing SAT's and other miscellaneous stuff in my academics. Also gym. Lots of that.

    I already posted about my work week, but personally, this Thursday is the 4-year anniversary of losing my dad to cancer (non-Hodgkin's mantle cell lymphoma). So there's a bit of a funk there.

    While congratulating myself for getting to the platform on time for the 6am train (I usually take the 6:15), I noticed I forgot my glasses. As it would be absolutely senseless to go to work without them, I got off the train, trudged back up the hill and got them, got back in time to watch the 6:15 leave and had to catch the 6:30. It's been getting progressively worse from there.

        nah, it's unpaid, which makes it worse. But I need stuff on my resume while in school so here I am. Need to now find another way to make money though.

          I'd definitely try to look for another job. Forget the resume, it's not worth it for unpaid work you don't know how to do. At Least that's my opinion.

    Might even do some work if I get the chance. ;)
