In the previous lesson, Dictionaries and sets in C# .NET, we introduced dictionaries and sets. Today's tutorial is dedicated to two special collections, queues and stacks. We'll explain how these collections work and create examples in C# .NET for each one of them. The queue and the stack are used in rather advanced algorithms, but every programmer should know them and know how to use them when it's convenient.
Queue (generally as FIFO, meaning First In First Out) refers to a collection that has two basic methods. These methods are an analogy for adding and removing methods from other collections. The method for adding an element adds it to the end of the queue, just like when you're waiting in line at the post office.
