In this lesson, we went over:

  • Manually repeating tasks.
  • for-in loops are used to iterate over collection items like ranges and strings.
  • stride() creates a range that we can customize.
  • _ usage when we don’t need to use the placeholder variable.
  • continue allows us to move on to the next value.
  • break stops the loop before the stopping condition is met.
  • while loops are used when we don’t know how many times we’re looping.

  • Use a loop to determine if a number is a prime number.
  • Loop through a string and count how many characters are in it.
  • Recreate the follow pattern using loops:
