Description

If you want to learn to program in Kotlin in far less time than you previously thought possible then read on.

The world today is a hectic place.  Most of us have very little spare time.

To become a software developer you need programming skills.  But how can you get those skills in the minimum amount of time and still have a life along the way?

Do I need to learn 100% of the Kotlin language?

No!  To understand how this course can help you, there is a need to understand how programming languages are constructed.  The creators of these languages try and add every single feature they think someone might need, ever.

A large part of the language rarely gets used, and sometimes not at all.  It’s the same with software.  If you have used a spreadsheet in the past, I’d lay odds that you use it for basic spreadsheet work, and you rarely, if ever go into some of the advanced functionality.  The basic functions of the spreadsheet are what most people use.

Imagine if you had to learn every feature of the spreadsheet program.  How long would it take, and would most of that information be useful to you?  Especially if you were learning it to get a job and that job only required basic spreadsheet skills.

Switching back to programming, if your goal is to get your first programming job, then why not only learn what you need to achieve that goal?  And worry about the other stuff if and when you need it.

That’s what this course is all about – giving you the skills you need quickly without any fluff or useless information.

The course is aimed at complete beginners.

We assume you have never programmed before in this course and start from scratch and show you step by step how to download and install the tools, through to writing your first programs, and from there we move to more and more parts of the Kotlin language that you need to understand.

If you are already a programmer, you will still find value in this course – It’s very common for programmers to want to learn a second or third programming language, and doing so makes you more valuable and opens up career opportunities.

As this is a crash course you can get skilled in Kotlin, fast.

What version of Kotlin will I learn?

Keep in mind there are constant updates to Kotlin.  So if you see a newer version when you are installing it, then use that version.

What will you learn in the course?

You’ll learn the essential Kotlin skills needed to become employable as a Kotlin developer.

  • Creating a Kotlin basic program
  • All about setting up and running Kotlin programs
  • Data Types, Variables, Conditional Processing, Loops, Classes, Operators, Expressions – all the good stuff.

In the course, you will work with a lot of Kotlin example code.  You will start with Kotlin code that was badly written.  You’ll see why it’s bad, and then as you progress through the course, you will improve it and make the code bug free.

This approach, along with smaller snippers of code will help you become a programmer as well as think as a programmer.  And as a result, lt you will learn how to get the most out of Kotlin.

What about the instructors?

Your instructor Goran has been a software developer for over 14 years (12 commercially), creating Desktop, Web, and Mobile applications during this time.

He is a fully certified Java Developer (Java Oracle Certificate Associate programmer Java SE 8) have a lot of experience with Java, Kotlin, JPA, Java Enterprise Edition, Spring, Spring Boot, Maven, Gradle, and JavaFX.

In addition, he has been heavily involved in game development and frameworks used to create games. He is also a Unity Certified Expert Programmer.

See you on the inside (hurry, the Kotlin class is waiting!)

Who this course is for:

  • This course is perfect for absolute beginners with no previous programming experience.
  • Existing programmers who know Java, C#, JavaScript, Python, or other languages who want to become skilled in Kotlin.
