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.

Multi-dimensional arrays

An array is a homogeneous collection of data elements. An array's indexes range from index 0 to index m-1, where m is the fixed length of the array. An array with multiple dimensions is an array of an array. The following code initializes a multi-dimensional array. A three-dimensional array is printed:

///main package has examples shown
// in Go Data Structures and algorithms book
package main

// importing fmt package
import (
//main method
func main() {

var threedarray [2][2][2]int

var i int

var j int

var k int

for i=0; i < 2; i++ {

for j=0; j < 2; j++ {

for k=0; k < 2; k++ {

threedarray[i][j][k] = rand.Intn(3)


Run the following command to execute the preceding code snippet:

go run multidarray.go

The output is as follows:
