Next month sees the 60th birthday of a famous algorithm called Quicksort. We explore its origin, its workings, and some other work of its inventor Tony Hoare.

Imagine a world without computer errors. Tony Hoare, inventor of the famous Quicksort algorithm, is working on making it possible.

Quicksort is a famous algorithm which celebrates its 60th birthday this year. We explore its clever workings.

Next month sees the 60th birthday of a famous algorithm called Quicksort. Its inventor Tony Hoare told us that it all started with bubbles.
