Learn the most popular programming language on Android and start building your apps - understand Java interoperability!
This course teaches you Kotlin, from not knowing nothing about programming to an advanced understanding about programming and, more particularly, about Kotlin. We'll begin by understanding the basics of Kotlin, gradually and -most importantly - with confidence we'll move to more advanced topics, which I will cover in depth using intuitive and practical examples. Additionally, and the end of each section I will give you a challenge to consolidate your understanding.
Topics covered include:
Variable and Nullable types (Null safety)
Control flow: if statement-expression and when statement-expression
Loops: for, while and do while (Labels)
Functions: return, overloading, default values for parameters, and vargarg keyword
Object Oriented Programming: Classes, Objects, Interfaces, Abstract Classes, Companion Object, Singleton, Object Expression, etc.
Collections: List, Set, Map and MutableList, MutableSet, MutableMap, Transformations, Comparable and Comparator,
Generics: Type Parameters, Upper Bounds, Type Erasure, reified keyword
Generics: where keyword, Covariance and Contravariance
Exceptions: Try and Catch, Finally
Packages and Imports
Lambda and Higher Order Functions
Lambda and Higher Order Functions - it keyword in lambda expression
Who this course is for?
If you are a Java Developer and you want to move forward with Kotlin- then, this course if for you!
If you are a beginner who wants to learn a new programming language, because you want to create apps that are going to bring value to the world and, implicitly, this means that you'll need to use android to make apps, because Kotlin now has the full support of Google, and that means that Kotlin is going to stay and it's going to consolidate itself as a programming language and, more particularly, as the Android programming language-then, this course is for you!
