Next, you will learn about operators used in Kotlin, which will include the arithmetic operator, relational, assignment, bitwise, unary, and logical operator, then you will be introduced to control statements in Kotlin, here, you will learn about the functions of some statements, this includes the conditional If statement which is used to check for some specified conditions and run the codes based on that, next, you will be taught the functions of loops, this includes "for loop" which is used to iterate over a part of a program multiple times, you will also learn about while loop and the infinite loop.
This course will also teach you the functions of the "break" and "continue" statements in Kotlin, then you will learn how a function performs tasks and enhance the performance of other functions in Kotlin, next, you will learn how to solve a problem by creating a function that calls itself multiple times until the set condition is met, a process called recursion. You will also learn how a try block can be used in exception handling, next, you will learn how to make nullable and non-nullable variables in Kotlin. You will also learn about Kotlin classes, here, you will learn about the list of functions, mutable list, an array list of functions as well as how to efficiently retrieve the corresponding values to each key using the mutable map. Finally, you will learn about object-oriented programming and the properties of a nested class, next, you will learn about visibility modifiers and types which includes the private and public modifiers, then you will learn how to call a java code from Kotlin as well as how to call a Kotlin file from java.
Kotlin is a cross-platform general programming language used by over sixty percent of app developers. Kotlin has a mature language and environment which makes it very user-friendly thus enabling easier and swifter application development. By taking this course, you will learn how to set up Kotlin on windows, Mac, and Linux OS after which you will learn the basics, control flow statements like for "loop" and "when loop", you will also learn about the error and exception handling as well as class and how to call java codes from Kotlin and vice versa.
