in #utopian-io2 years ago (edited)

The Weekly Top of Utopian is a showcase of Staff Picks from contributions made in the past week, hand-selected by our Community Managers from across all Utopian.io categories.


Staff Picks

This week we feature outstanding development contributions, informative video tutorials, a bug not easily discovered and two interesting analyses, one of which studies Steem blockchain rewards and their form. These are just some of the best contributions our Community Managers spotted on Utopian.io during the week.

Bug Report: Busy.org overwriting comment json_metadata by @mkt [bug-hunting]


@mkt has detected that Busy.org overwrites the comments json_metadata with one of its own metadata. This has an effect on other applications using the Steemit json_metadata eg. the-magic-frog. To fix this, @mkt proposes a fix in the form of a small pull request. Even though the bug may be considered minor and has escaped the eyes of other developers, it was presented in a very good format, earning it a Staff Pick status.

The Fundamentals of Zones, Microtasks and Event Loops in the Dart Programming Language - Dart Tutorial Part 3 by @tensor [video-tutorials]


This is another one of @tensor’s highly informative video tutorials. In this tutorial he covers concepts such as Zones in Dart, Microtasks, Event Queues and Microtask Queues. From an educational standpoint, @tensor also asks learners to consider what the code should do before they run it. This is an excellent practice as it gets learners to have mental imagery of what they expect to happen before it happens. This is higher order cognition and a great benefit to learners.

Utopian.io: a steady stream of new projects supported! Repository analysis March-May 2018 by @crokkon [analysis]

The author (@jayplayco) keeps us updated with the latest news from the Steemhunt project. Steemhunt is an active project with continuously-occurring updates. This makes it challenging to choose the important ones before the information is dated.

@jayplayco has been a member of the moderation team and long before that he was actively engaged in the community. It is encouraging to see authors like him, who have found their enthusiasm for a project and helped it grow by writing supplementary materials and articles.

Analysis of the evolution of rewards differentiated by tokens by @lokomotion [analysis]

In this contribution, @lokomotion looked into the evolution of the rewards, split by the different STEEM tokens. He started with a well-thought infographic using a plumbing system and an explanation of each of the tokens. What made this contribution stand out was how the author split and labelled the evolution of the total rewarded tokens per month and followed these with explanations.

Finally, he looked into the most rewarded accounts and grouped them into yellow (focused on accumulating STEEM Power), purple (focused on accumulating SBDs), and green (VESTS and SBDs are almost equal) accounts.

Introducing steemconnect4j by @hapramp [development]


SteemConnect is widely used in applications built on the Steem blockchain and because of this there are already quite a few libraries built for it in programming languages such as Python and JavaScript. Thanks to @hapramp (and @bxute) steemconnect4j finally gives the Java lovers amongst us a convenient way to use SteemConnect in their applications as well! They have even provided an example project showing you how to use it!
