I thought it can be beneficial to share a list of Go packages that are popular in my projects. The list consist of modules used for parsing environment, testing code, logging, database clients and others. You might know all of them but there could be one that makes it worth for you to get through the list.

But if you want to learn how this actually works you will find out different algorithms and one of them is quick sort, which is one of the most popular and performant around them.

In this post I will show you the basic quick sort implementation in Go and describe step by step how it works. First things first:

What is Quick Sort?

As wikipedia states:

Quicksort is an efficient sorting algorithm, serving as a…
