• Anagrams Revisited

    Revisiting an Anagram Detector

    The following example is taken from Problem Solving with Algorithms and Data Structures using Python. We wrote this example for the first edition of the book 10 years ago!

  • The Importance of Good Indices

    On the Importance of Good Indices

    The beginning of a new school year is always a busy time. But these last three years I have found myself holding my breath and watching Google’s real time analytics with more than a bit of nervousness. The charts below should give you a good idea why.
