Swift Loops: `for-in`

New Course Coming Soon:

Get Really Good at Git

This tutorial belongs to the Swift series

for-in loops can be used to iterate a specific amount of times, using a range operator:

for index in 0...3 {
  //iterate 4 times, `index` is: 0, 1, 2, 3

You can iterate over the elements of an array or set:

let list = ["a", "b", "c"]
for item in list {
  // `item` contains the element value

And on the elements of a dictionary:

let list = ["a": 1, "b": 2, "c": 2]
for (key, value) in list {
  // `key` contains the item key
  // `value` contains the item value
Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching May 21, 2024. Join the waiting list!
