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
  • Functions
  • Object orientation: classes, objects, interfaces, inheritance etc.
  • Data classes (a handy feature in Kotlin)
  • UPDATE: more object-orientation + binary and hexadecimal numbers
  • UPDATE: the information hiding principle + generics

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.

So get in now to help shape this course and become part of the community inside!

Introduction (What You're Going To Get Out Of This Course!)
What YOU will create while following along this course, starting out with a simple "Hello World" program and creating more sophisticated programs over time.After the course, you'll have all the fundamentals you need to start diving into other programming languages and learn more advanced concepts. The course will also be extended over time to cover more such advanced topics.This course will start with the basics and cover conditional statements, functions, lists and arrays, classes and objects, inheritance and more about object-orientation. We will also learn some functional programming examples.

What is Kotlin?
Grasp the concepts of Kotlin and where it comes from
A Brief Overview
Kotlin is an object-oriented languages with functional features as well. It facilitates many things, provides null safety and offers a concise and readable syntax.
Try It Out In 30 Seconds!
On try.kotlinlang.org (check link in the resources), you can try out some sample applications and get to know the basics of Kotlin. It is a great playground for simple code snippets.
Getting the Tools
How to setup the necessary environments and tools
Downloading the JDK
This lectures guides you through the process of downloading the latest Java Development Kit (JDK) we need to use Kotlin.
Downloading IntelliJ
In this step, we download the free and powerful IntelliJ Community Edition from the Jetbrains website. This is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that provides awesome support for Kotlin, Java, and many other languages. It is also the IDE used by Google for Android App Development.
Setting up IntelliJ
Learn how to adjust the editor theme and font size in IntelliJ to your personal preferences and how to create the first project.
Getting Started With Kotlin!
How to create a simple Kotlin program, how to use variables, using val vs. var, how to use the main() function, printing using println(), how to run a Kotlin program, basic types
  • We will go through all setup you need in order to use Kotlin
  • You must be able to install new software on your computer (JDK + IntelliJ), we will go through the actual process inside the course.
