Applying Functions in R
The functional approach to programming is something that makes R unique. In this course you will learn how to leverage the tools in this programming paradigm, such as the apply family of functions, and know how to apply them in the real world
What you'll learn
The functional approach to programming is something that makes R unique and powerful. In this course, Applying Functions in R, you will learn foundational knowledge of functional programming in R. First, you will understand how the apply functions work. Next, you will discover why the functional approach is far superior to for loops in R. Finally, you will explore a multitude of functions that apply in different use cases. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of using the apply family of functions needed to write clear and concise code without a for loop.
