Essential Algorithms: The Quick Sort

Essential Algorithms: The Quick Sort

The Quick Sort is an interesting algorithm and a favorite among software engineers, with some unique advantages and quirks worth looking into. Quick Sort can be highly efficient, often outperforming Merge Sort, although certain cases can make it behave slowly like Bubble Sort. As always, we’ll jump in first with a broad-strokes overview of how this particular algorithm works before exploring the finer points about why it behaves the way it does.
