October 2003

Summary: This article kicks off a six-part series that focuses on important data structures and their use in application development. We’ll examine both built-in data structures present in the .NET Framework, as well as essential data structures we’ll have to build ourselves. This first installment focuses on defining what data structures are, how the efficiency of data structures is analyzed, and why this analysis is important. In this article, we’ll also examine the Array and ArrayList, two of the most commonly used data structures present in the .NET Framework.

    Years Ago? Are all the articles posted somewhere? I want to read all 6 now :-) I have been waiting for a good article on Data Structures. There isn’t very much information out there on DS and especially in the .Net world?

  2. #1 and #2 have been sent to me… #1 has just been posted now… the rest should follow over the next 4 months
