Sorting in Python || Learn Python Programming (Computer Science)


Sorting is a fundamental task in software engineering. In Python, there are a variety of ways to sort lists, tuples, and other objects. Today we talk about the sort() method which is an in-place algorithm for sorting lists. We also cover the sorted() function which can be used on more objects, and creates a sorted copy, leaving the original object unchanged.

  1. Welcome to Socratica! You can see our entire Python Playlist here:

    Subscribe to see all our new videos!

  2. If I had told my child self that one day I'd be entertaining myself by going through computer programming languages while a worldwide viral pandemic has everyone on lockdown, I think I would have been ok with this.

  3. Can someone explain what’s going on at 2:23 ? How do you assign names to elements of a list? She just blew over how to do this (I use dataframes a lot)

  4. I don't get the lines:
    size = lambda planet : planet[1]
    planets.sort(key=size, reverse=True)
    Could anyone enlighten me please?

  5. The way you speak, reminds me of space games that I used to play when I was a child. This make learning so much more fun. Thank you!

  6. Very well choreographed videos, very innovative way of teaching python. These guys deserve some sort of recognition and fame. Great work 👍

  7. While my high school teacher forbids us to use sort() function because we are learning how to implement bubble sort and insertion sort in python. 😂

  8. It's official! The Socratica Python Kickstarter was a success! Thank you to all of our supporters. Because of you, many more Python videos coming soon!! 💜🦉
