Mastering data structures is a non-negotiable skill for success as a developer. Efficient data structures help execute effective programs. Today, many programming roles require great knowledge of data structures. They are also a fundamental part of coding interviews. By The Educative Team.
In programming, a stack is an abstract, linear data type with a predefined capacity (or boundary). It follows a particular order for adding or removing elements. Linear data structures organize their components in a straight line, so if we add or remove an element, they will grow or shrink respectively.
In the article authors will cover:
