New Course: Kotlin Fundamentals

  • Do you want to get started using one of the hottest new programming languages out there? Then check out our new course, Kotlin Fundamentals.

    What You’ll Learn

    In this course, Android developer Annapurna Agrawal will teach you everything you need to know to develop Android apps in the Kotlin language. 

    You'll start from scratch, with a brief overview of Kotlin and its advantages, and a look at how to set up the IDE. Then you'll move on to writing your first Kotlin code and dig deeper into its method of execution. 

    You'll learn the basic syntax before moving on to fundamental topics such as functions and classes, loops and iterators. You'll also get a sneak peek at some advanced features of Kotlin like lambdas, higher-order functions, and using Java and Kotlin together in the same app.

    Here are some free lessons from this course, as a preview of what you can expect:

    Write Your First Kotlin Code

    In this lesson, you'll write your first Kotlin program and execute it in IntelliJ IDEA. You'll also learn how classes are automatically created.

     Classes and Functions

    Learn how to call other functions from Kotlin main(). You'll see how to call a function inside a class and how to use field variables and class properties outside the class.

     String Templates and Interpolation

    In this video, you'll learn how to use string interpolation, with some examples to explain the concept.
