I found existing online instructions to install python3 on my mac confusing and complicated. Hence, below I listed instructions of how I installed python3 and PyCharm on my mac which I think are simpler than the ones on the internet. You might find them useful. Although the list looks so long, the steps are very easy and simple to follow.
I am so thrilled to announce that I have received my PhD today and I am now officially Dr. Zhanna Sarsenbayeva! :) It was an amazing journey and I enjoyed every single moment of it! I am so grateful to my life and my universe that it worked exactly this way! This journey was full of joy, success, happiness, love, fun, exciting trips, karaoke singing, surprises, new contacts, connections and opportunities!
This year I was again very lucky to attend Ubicomp’19 and present my first-author paper on Measuring the Effects of Stress on Mobile Interaction in London, UK.
This year we attended UbiComp’18 with a big crowd from the University of Melbourne. UbiComp’18 was held in Singapore and it was a great experience to visit this amazing country. I was also my first time to visit South East Asia for such a long period. I must say the humidity is very difficult to get used to :)
I recently had to create a standalone android application with Aware applications sensor. I summed up the steps in this post for a reference.
Recently I needed to copy my existing project to a new git repository. After trying some solutions suggested on StackOverflow this one worked for me.
I always forget how to add my local projects (on my mac) to github. That’s why decided to record the steps here so I remember them in the future.
I experienced some issues running MySQL on my laptop for some reason. It constantly kept giving me an error: access denied for user @’localhost’ (using password: yes). I solved it by uninstalling completely MySQL and reinstalling again. But instead of using MySQL installer, I used Brew for installing MySQL and it worked. Below are the short steps of what I have done.
I have recently attended OzCHI2017 conference in Brisbane where I presented our paper on Challenges of Situational Impairments during Interaction with Mobile Devices. We got the Honourable Mention Award for this paper. It was also my first experience being a Student Volunteer at a conference. I really enjoyed working with the SV team and handling the SV duties.
I have recently developed an app which can be used to quantify user performance in tapping tasks, searching tasks and typing tasks. Don’t worry that the repo is called TypeMe. It was initially created as a repo for a typing task only, but then it grew into a bigger project which combines all of the three tasks. Please feel free to have a look and fork the project if needed.
