Here's all you need to know:

Discover why Google has pinned Kotlin as the future of Android development with this two-day course.

You will learn Kotlin development techniques and language principles, and walk away knowing how to migrate existing Java projects to Kotlin.

Who should take this class?

  • Java Android developers who are interested in transitioning their projects to Kotlin

  • Developers who are looking to explore the Kotlin language.

  • Developers who want to see both object-oriented and functional programming paradigms implemented in a modern JVM language.

  • Junior Android developers who need to learn new skills to advance their career.

  • Teams looking to upgrade their applications from Java to Kotlin.

What you'll learn:

  • Fundamentals of Kotlin’s type system, including how to safely work with nullable types

  • How to efficiently represent series of data using arrays and collections

  • Functional programming techniques

  • Readable and writable properties in Kotlin

  • How to represent complex data structures with objects, inheritance, and extensions

  • Java and Kotlin interoperability, including how to port your existing applications from Java to Kotlin

 

How to prepare:

Syllabus:

 

The Basics

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

  • Work with conditionals and 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 and how they may be safely handled

 

Collections and Functions

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

  • See how to work with data 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

  • See how to pass functions as arguments, lambda notation, function references, and function inlining by example

  • Use functional paradigms to clean up code, including map, flatMap, filter, and reduce, as well as how to define your own functional operators

 

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

  • 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

  • Take a peek at the future of multithreading with coroutines

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