Alternative Big O Notation
I always found things easy to remember when they rhyme, especially with humor. So, here is my take on big O notation, which can help you remember the rankings of big O types:
O(1) = O(yeah) O(logn) = O(nice) O(n) = O(k) O(n^2) = O(my) O(2^n) = O(no) O(n!) = O(mg) O(n^n) = O(sh*t!)
If you want to see my actual article explaining Big O time/space complexity types, here it is:
If you want to have the alternative Big O notation as a sticker, so you can stick it to unusual places, you can get it from quanticdev.com/shop.
If you really want to confuse fellow software engineers, you can also get it as a small poster, bigger poster, framed print, hoodie, phone case, mug, blanket, or even a shower curtain!
Side Note: Asymptotically, O(n^n) is equal to O(2^n), so the last line in the alternative big O notation list is just for the humor’s sake.
Did I forget to say that there is also a video version of this article (!)
