How to Use Lambda With the Sort Method

Give Feedback

In this lesson, you’ll see how to use a lambda for the key of the sort() method of lists. sort() has two parameters. key is None by default. reverse is False by default.

You won’t be altering reverse, but you will be looking at key because you can use a lambda expression to alter the behavior of sort(). When you use lambda, you can extend key to be much more versatile.
