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.

Preface

Learn Data Structures and Algorithms with Go covers topics related to simple and advanced concepts in computer programming. The primary objective is to choose the correct algorithm and data structures for a problem. This book explains the concepts for comparing algorithm complexity and data structures in terms of code performance and efficiency.

Golang has been the buzzword for the last two years, with tremendous improvements being seen in this area. Many developers and organizations are slowly migrating to Golang, adopting its fast, lightweight, and inbuilt concurrency features. This means we need to have a solid foundation in data structures and algorithms with this growing language.
