1 - About

A data structure is the static format of data (ie persist on the disk) whereas data type is the runtime representation in code. The two are synonym.

Structured data has a schema defining its structure.

Bad programmers worry about the code. Good programmers worry about data structures and their relationships.

The clarity of examples, and the software’s decipherability and debuggability in the real world, are likely far more important. Form must communicate function.
