Description

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.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, everyone. My name is Chase de Hand and welcome to my course, applying functions in our I'm currently the manager data Science sisario and hold a PhD in economics from the University of Utah. In this course, we're going to cover the functional brochure programming. Are people coming from different languages are going to be familiar with using four loops? Well, our does support loops there, generally to be avoided, so the major topics we'll cover include what the functional approaches and why are does a poor job loops, apply family function, anonymous functions and specific cases where you want to use each of these functions. By the end of this course, you'll know how to use the apply family functions and how to write code in a functional approach. Before beginning this course, you should be quite familiar with the our language and had the ability to use and right functions. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn the functional programming paradigm in our with the applying functions in our course at plural site
