The sound of 15 sorting algorithms
Every single computer science student at some point has to learn about sorting algorithms. You first hear about them in the first semesters during Algorithms 101, you later learn more about them during Operating Systems and Multithreaded programming and you probably hear about them one more time in Computational complexity theory.
But have you ever wondered what quicksort/bubble sort/insertion sort or any other sorting algorithm sounded like?
This extremely cool video was made by Timo Bingmann, who uses it when teaching algorithms in Karlsruhe. He has also created a windows applications in which you can slow down the speed, select the array size etc. A git repository containing all sources and revisions is fetchable by running
