in #utopian-io3 years ago

It's been a fine week of contributions, as Steem goes back to normal in a post HF20 world. This week, we've got outstanding contributions from the Tutorials, Translations, Development, Blog, and Documentation categories. And the very first - and also oustanding - contribution from our brand new Antiabuse category. We're very excited about this. Let's dive in!

Staff Picks

Writing a simple Compiler on my own - Finishing Off The Grammar/Parser (part 1) by @drifter1 [tutorials]

Compilers have historically been some of the most difficult projects to work on. In this tutorial series, @drifter1 provides a phased approach to building a compiler for a simplified version of C. This approach made for a very well written, beautifully explained tutorial, with many planned additions and improvements for the compiler.

[Vietnamese Translation] - Source: The Curious Expedition - Part 2: 1033 words in English by @lenancie [translations]

This is a product of excellent team work between the translator and the moderator. As noted by the moderator, “The Curious Expedition is a difficult project with technical terminologies and gaming jargon which will require a good background knowledge”. The translator did a professional job of making sure that the translation uses the correct words to keep the information factual. The translator paid attention to detail, and used the correct terminology used.

Introducing Contest Hero [0.1.9] by @tobias-g [development]

This is @tobias-g’s first Development contribution in a few months, but it’s definitely one of the best we’ve had! In this contribution, he introduces Contest Hero, which allows users to create, manage and enter contests on Steem. It includes more than ten features so far, which is definitely extremely impressive for a single contribution. The website itself looks amazing as well, and should be very valuable for people who are interested in creating and joining contests. Keep an eye on it!

Steem Use-a-Thon by Byteball - Winners Announcement by [blog]

The Use-a-Thon, launched by several weeks ago, comes to a satisfying conclusion with this post. They round up all of the contributions from the past several weeks, and declare the winners. The post is very well written, expertly illustrated with graphics, and is just full of goodness. Reading it was a delight.

Godot Documentation: Custom Post-Processing by @clayjohn [Documentation]

Godot is a handy open source tool that enables people who love creating games to easily create them, without going through the hassle of building the game from scratch. The project is free and easy to use. @clayjohn has been a consistent contributor in the documentation category, and this time he submitted a very cool documentation contribution for this project. The contribution is very helpful both to the PO, and to people willing to learn about the project's source code.

Steem Flag Rewards Project Update and Milestone by @anthonyadavisii [Anti-abuse]

Much like the Utopian Anti-abuse category, the Steem Flag Rewards Program incentivizes the anti-abuse community. Their project rewards those who are tracking and taking action against abuse. This post by @anthonyadavisii, which is an update on the state of the program, was the perfect choice for our very first staff pick. It is an example for everyone on how to use for the antiabuse category. The post is clean, thoughtful, and easy to read. It engages the reader and encourages them to get involved in anti-abuse efforts.

Anti-abuse Is still missing in the category statistics ;)

Contributions made today aren't included in the statistics (will probably change this) and the category was opened 8 hours ago.

Just wanted to mention it, in case it has been missed ;)

Steem Flag Rewards sounds like it rewards patriotic action taken to protect the steem Motherland :)))
