Data Structures - Introduction

Data structure is a subcategory of data type. The data structures are types of collections. They store and organize the data.
Python uses four built-in data structures - lists, tuples, dictionaries and sets:

List Ordered and changeable collection
Tuple Ordered and unchangeable collection
Dictionary Ordered and changeable collection. Has keys and values
Set Unordered and changeable collection of unique elements

In the next tutorials we are going to deep dive to each data structure. While you are reading try to think how the unique features of the data structures make them helpful for different programming challenges.
