Quick Python 4: Sipping from a File (Open/Print Contents)

In this video, we take a sip out of a file – just a quick skim, printing out the contents.

It’s a great skill that we’ll build on later.

How to Implement Quicksort – Essential Sorting Algorithms in Python

In this video, we learn the ins and outs of Quicksort, a sorting algorithm that will come in handy in many situations. We go over theory, and then visualize the entire sorting process from start to finish.

We cover the quicksort method in general, as well as two partition schemes: Lomuto and Hoare methods. Lomuto is simpler, but the Hoare method, named for Quicksort’s inventor, C.A.R. Hoare, is more efficient. \

How to Implement a Binary Search Tree in Python

Decisions, decisions… Life is all about choices! Usually there are so many ways to go. An infinite expanse of roads and pathways stretches in front of you, an endless gradient of details; as you consider them, your head starts to spin, your eyes start to droop, your mind races, your head pounds –

Wait a second. There’s no need to stress. Since we’re talking about Binary Search Trees, decisions are going to be a lot easier. A Binary Search Tree (BST) gives you two choices: left or right, less than or greater than, 0 or 1 – hence the name, binary.
