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.
