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.

Database operations

In this section, we will take a look at some of database operations using appropriate examples.

Let's start with the GetCustomer method in the next section.

The GetCustomer method

The GetCustomer method retrieves the Customer data from the database. To start with, the create database operation is shown in the following example. Customer is the table with the Customerid, CustomerName, and SSN attributes. The GetConnection method returns the database connection, which is used to query the database. The query then returns the rows from the database table. In the following code, database operations are explained in detail (database_operations.go):
