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.

Lists

A list is a collection of ordered elements that are used to store list of items. Unlike array lists, these can expand and shrink dynamically.

Lists also be used as a base for other data structures, such as stack and queue. Lists can be used to store lists of users, car parts, ingredients, to-do items, and various other such elements. Lists are the most commonly used linear data structures. These were introduced in the lisp programming language. In this chapter, linked list and doubly linked list are the lists we will cover in the Go language.

Let's discuss the operations related to add, update, remove, and lookup on linked list and doubly linked list in the following section.

LinkedList

LinkedList is a sequence...
