In programming, a loop is used to repeat a block of code until a specified condition is met. The for-loop is best when you want to repeat something for a fixed number of times. The for-loop changes iteratively a certain variable from given start value to given end value.

In programming, a loop is used to repeat a block of code until a specified condition is met. The while-loop controls flow statement that allows code to be executed repeatedly based on a given boolean condition. The do-while loop repeats a block of code until an exit condition is met.

In programming, loops are used to repeat a block of code several times, until an exit condition is met or after a fixed number of executions. Nested loops (loop inside another loop) allow repeating a block of code, inside another repeating block of code. Nested loops allow implementing more complex logic, with nested repetitions.

What Do Our Students Have to Say?

SoftUni is a great place to make the first step that just might change your life – it happened to me. I know software engineering seems hard, but SoftUni has a great learning program that starts with baby steps and you learn new skills in stages. Once you join the program it will not be easy, but trust me - don’t give up!

SoftUni offers what most universities lack – a modern curriculum with emphasis on practical experience and hands-on projects, rather than solely on theory. During my time there, SoftUni gave me the ability to develop full-stack projects from start to finish and prepared me for the professional world.
