The 7 Most Popular DEV Posts from the Past Week

1. When you name an algorithm after yourself... becomes the fastest? heh, jk. This was an awesome overview of a lesser known algorithm (that happens to be a standard sorting algorithm for Python.)

2. Showcasing: Linux Distros

A summary writeup/guide/table of linux distros for anyone considering a new OS.

3. Hallmark of a mid-level dev

Through a process of crowdsourcing and mentorship on an algorithm problem, Tiffany is reminded that it's best to focus on simplicity/readability than cleverness.

4. What are type annotations?

Whether or not you choose to use type annotations, if you're a Python developer, you might just want to know about them.


If you get filled up with dread every time you need to regex something, this library might help you.


As an underrepresented person in software, Brenda shares her experience dealing with men who believe women are 'too fragile' to be developers. Our wonderful DEV Community rallies together to encourage Brenda in the comments :)

7. You're basically there already!

Sam shows us how to create a chrome extension from a PWA. This could mean as easy as throwing your site in an iFrame and calling it a day.

That's it for our weekly wrap up! Keep an eye on this week for daily content and discussions...and if you miss anything, we'll be sure to recap it next Monday!
