Learn Data Structures and Algorithms with Golang

By: Bhagvan Kommadi

Overview of this book

Golang is one of the fastest growing programming languages in the software industry. Its speed, simplicity, and reliability make it the perfect choice for building robust applications. This brings the need to have a solid foundation in data structures and algorithms with Go so as to build scalable applications. Complete with hands-on tutorials, this book will guide you in using the best data structures and algorithms for problem solving. The book begins with an introduction to Go data structures and algorithms. You'll learn how to store data using linked lists, arrays, stacks, and queues. Moving ahead, you'll discover how to implement sorting and searching algorithms, followed by binary search trees. This book will also help you improve the performance of your applications by stringing data types and implementing hash structures in algorithm design. Finally, you'll be able to apply traditional data structures to solve real-world problems. By the end of the book, you'll have become adept at implementing classic data structures and algorithms in Go, propelling you to become a confident Go programmer.

Memory Management

Memory management is a way to control and organize memory. Memory divisions are called blocks, and they are used for running different processes. The basic goal of memory management algorithms is to dynamically designate segments of memory to programs on demand. The algorithms free up memory for reuse when the objects in the memory are never required again. Garbage collection, cache management, and space allocation algorithms are good examples of memory management techniques. In software engineering, garbage collection is used to free up memory that's been allocated to those objects that won't be used again, thus helping in memory management. The cache provides in-memory storage for data. You can sort the data in the cache into locale-specific groups. The data can be stored using key and value sets.
