Let’s learn about stacks in Go.


The stack is a data structure that operates on the last-in-first-out (LIFO) principle. This means that the elements that we inserted last would be removed first.

Applications of stacks

The stack is used in a wide variety of applications, including:

  • Implementation of recursive calls.
  • Postfix evaluation of an expression.
  • Backtracking.
  • Depth-first search of trees and graphs.
  • Converting a decimal to a binary number, and so on.
