Understanding Quick-Sort through Hungarian Folk Dance

  • A video to explain to beginners how an algorithm like Quick-Sort really works

Understanding the very nature and basics of how some algorithms works can be difficult for beginners. For example - how do you sort a random set of numbers into an order of ascending value? Well, you probably take for granted how that works because as humans we'd simply look at them and instantly know because of prior knowledge we already have. Computers don't have that knowledge so one of the most basic algorithms is Quick-Sort.

Learning how Quick-Sort works will really open your eyes if you have never thought about algorithms before and this video is actually a great demonstration (albeit a little long).
