WHAT WILL WE COVER?

The Basics

  • Understand writable & read-only properties and take a look at Kotlin’s type system.

  • Work with conditionals & control flow statements and gain the additional support of control flow statements as assignable expressions

  • Learn about nullable and non-nullable types and how to work with null safely

  • Understand exceptions & how they may be safely handled

  • Learn about the standard functions included with Kotlin's standard library: let, apply, also, takeIf, and run

Collections and Functions

  • Learn how to represent series of data with mutable and read-only collection types

  • See how to work with data using for loops, while loops, break, and continue

  • Take a closer look at collections, including destructuring, type checking, smart casting, and type parameter constraints

  • Learn about defining package and file level functions and specifying their return types

  • Use the function type to define functions that accept other functions, and learn how to optimize them by using the inlining feature of the Kotlin compiler

  • Use the functional programming features of Kotlin to clean up code, including map, flatMap, filter, and reduce, as well as how to define your own functional operators and higher order functions.

Objects, Inheritance, and Extensions

  • Work with object-oriented programming concepts

  • Learn about primary and secondary constructors, equality, and preconditions for object construction

  • Learn how to use data classes and enums to represent data and algebraic data types

  • Override classes, and define abstract, open or closed classes

  • Use Kotlin's built-in singleton implementation

  • Understand extension functions to safely add behavior to classes you don't control.

Advanced Kotlin

  • Learn how to interoperate with Java classes and supports Java compatibility.

  • Explore Kotlin’s platform independence

  • Use coroutines to spin up lightweight threads for doing work in the background

  • Use extensions with receivers to define a domain-specific language
