In this tutorial we are going to be taking a quick look at the bubble sort sorting algorithm. This algorithm is another very well known sorting algorithm that is quite often referenced in technical interviews. It is amongst the worst performing sorting algorithm with an average and a worst case sorting complexity of
How It Works
Bubble sort works by constantly iterating through an unsorted array and swapping values within that array until such times as no swaps are made within a full pass through the array.
Implementing in Python
Now that we have an appreciation for how the algorithm works, let’s now take a look at how you would go about implementing this in the Python programming language.
When we go to run this in our terminal, we should see that it successfully swaps a number of elements in our list until there are no more swaps to do and it will return a sorted list.
Awesome! So, in this tutorial, we looked at how you could successfully implement the Bubble Sort algorithm in Python.
