Week 12

Test 2 didn't quite go as was planned... I did very poorly.
For the is_plex problem, it was very difficult for me since my is_regex was complicated to begin with, so it was really hard for me to do this question. I had so much code that covered the entire page! For instance I would delete all trailing +'s. As for LinkedLists, I REALLY have to review and completely understand this concept if I plan to do well on the exam.

To boost our self-esteem, this weeks lab was a joke. It consisted of us copying and pasting times into excel. As simple as it was, it proved to be useful because it allowed us to compare the speeds of the different types of sorting. I can conclude that Bubblesort is the slowest, and the build-in sort is the fastest. If I ever have time, I'd want to look into the build-in sort code to see exactly why it is the fastest. That's it that's all folks, see you next time!
