Developer skills training: Kotlin Advanced Developer

Do you have some Kotlin (production) experience and want to get more out of it? This 2-day training course covers all the advanced features, which allows you to unleash the true power of Kotlin. With a mix of theory, live coding, and hands-on exercises, you will master Kotlin's advanced features in no time! 

What will you learn during the Kotlin Advanced Developer training?

In this training, you'll get to know all the advanced and powerful features Kotlin offers, like Kotlin's functional programming features and how to write higher-order functions. You'll also learn how to use function literals with 'receiver' to write Type-Safe Builders and advanced DSLs.

What's more, you'll get to know how to write Kotlin in an idiomatic way, using immutability and an expression-oriented style, as well as their associated benefits. In the final part, you will gain in-depth knowledge about Kotlin Coroutines and all related primitives like Channel and Flow, which allow you to write non-blocking code in a sequential and easy-to-understand way.

Covered subjects:

  • Advanced Functional Programming & Collections
  • Type-safe Builders / DSLs
  • Delegation
  • Idiomatic Kotlin
  • Coroutines
  • Coroutine Interoperability with other reactive/async frameworks
  • Advanced Coroutine primitives: Channel & Flow

You will learn:

  • To master the functional programming concept and understand its benefits.
  • How to program Kotlin in an idiomatic and concise manner.
  • How to get the most out of Kotlin using an immutable, expression-oriented, functional programming style as well as its benefits compared to the imperative style.
  • How to apply various Kotlin language features to write advanced DSLs that can involve nested data structures.
  • The core ingredients of Coroutines and the related Coroutine Builders to write async/parallel code.
  • The difference between Coroutines and Threads as well as the crucial advantages Coroutines offer over Threads.
  • How existing async libraries (such as CompletableFutures, WebFlux, etc.) can easily be lifted to Coroutines and write code to bridge the two worlds.
  • How to effectively use Channels and Flows to write uni-directional and bi-directional reactive streams.

This Kotlin Advanced Developer training is perfect for...

We recommend you join us if you are a Backend Developer, Senior Developer, or Architect with at least half a year of (production) experience with Kotlin.
