Cache me Inside, Programming, Until like, Midnight or Something

Hello Internet, Joaquín here. Today, I’m going to talk about one of my courses from fall semester: CS105, also known as Computer Systems!

The classroom experience […]

So, I wanted to talk […]

I’ve personally found that I feel embarrassed when I have to ask for help, especially when I didn’t necessarily need it as much in […]
