Programming in Kotlin: Fundamentals
Learn the fundamental building blocks of Kotlin, through hands-on exercises and challenges! Explore the world of data types, comparison and logical operators, loops, control flow, functions, classes as custom types, and more.

Beginner developers who’ve had some or no experience with Kotlin, who want to gain in-depth knowledge of this majestic programming language!

You’ll learn a ton of fun and useful Kotlin concepts, starting off with data types and operators, then moving towards more complex features like statements & expressions, loops, and the flow of control. Then, building upon those concepts, you’ll play with collections, functions and classes.

Covered concepts

  • Data Types
  • Operations With Types
  • Logical Operators
  • Statements vs. Expressions
  • Nullable Types
  • Loops
  • Control Flow
  • Collections
  • Pairs & Triples
  • Nesting Expressions & Loops

Your Second Kotlin Android App
In this course, you’ll level up your Android skills by writing a task list managing app entirely in Kotlin. In it, you’ll learn about Recycler Views, saving data, using multiple activities, integrating fragments, and Android Jetpack.

This course is designed for people who have just started learning Kotlin and Android.

Covered concepts

  • Incorporate AndroidX into your apps and how to update older apps to use it.
  • Use the navigation and ViewModel components of the Android Jetpack framework.
  • Build dynamic recycler views based on user submitted data.
  • Save and read user data using Shared Preferences.

Programming in Kotlin: Functions & Custom Types
Take a deeper look at the Kotlin programming language! Explore the intricacies of functions, lambdas, classes, objects, interfaces, and more.

To start, you’ll review some function and lambda fundamentals. You’ll also practice writing lambdas and using them to manipulate collections.

Then, you’ll move on to build your skills in writing custom types: classes, interfaces, enum classes, and more. You’ll learn about features they share, and some of the functionality that makes each unique.

Throughout the course, you’ll practice everything you learn with hands-on challenges. Ready? Let’s get started!
