This course will teach you programming in Kotlin! We begin with the basics so this course is completely suitable for beginners. You will put what you learn into practice in several coding challenges. So at the end, you’ll be able to create your own applications in Kotlin.
If you’re an Android developer, you can use this course to get up to speed with this awesome language. Kotlin will allow you to maintain a cleaner and more expressive code base, use concepts that go beyond even Java 8, and write more robust apps for Android.
Topics covered include:
- Variables & nullable types (null safety)
- Conditionals: if and when
- Loops: for and while
- Object orientation: classes, objects, interfaces, inheritance etc.
- Data classes (a handy feature in Kotlin)
- UPDATE 03/2017: more object-orientation + binary and hexadecimal numbers
- UPDATE 04/2017: the information hiding principle + generics
- …this course keeps growing based on your feedback!
This course also covers object-orientation, the major development paradigm you need to grasp in today’s world. But we will also look at functional programming concepts that will make your life much easier.
Once you understand these, you will also be able to understand other object-oriented languages, including Java, PHP, C++, C#, Scala, or Swift. They all use this same basic paradigms.
Throughout the course, you can always contact me personally to get help when you’re stuck. I check the discussions regularly to help you at every step along the way.
Also, this course will be extended and refined in the future based on student feedback. I really appreciate each and every of my students so I listen to your feedback and act on it.
So get in now to help shape this course and become part of the community inside!
