Introduction to loops in R

Programming loops are a way to repeat blocks of code to perform the same task over and over again. R offers the same functionality to perform repetitive tasks, allowing to write less and more efficient code.

This guide introduces you to loops in R, explains how to write them, including for loops and while loops, and some best practice for writing efficient loops. I'll also take a look at vectorization in R, explaining what it is and why you should used vectorized functions where possible. This guide will introduce you to the basics of programming and automating tasks in R.
