Kotlin Coroutines for Android Masterclass
What you'll learn
- Use Kotlin Coroutines to implement the most common flows in Android applications
- Learn the best practices of software design with Coroutines
- Understand Coroutines cancellation and error handling in details
- Write unit tests using Coroutines
- Debug the most common issues in Coroutines-based code
- Grasp the bigger picture of Structured Concurrency
- Basic experience with Android and Kotlin
This course is your complete guide into the world of Kotlin Coroutines in Android. By the end of this course, you will feel confident to use Coroutines to write reliable, maintainable and responsive applications.
The philosophy of this course is "learn by coding", so you're going to master Coroutines by solving a series of carefully designed, hands-on exercises. These exercises are built into a tutorial Android application to make them as similar to the "real world" as possible. Therefore, you'll gain practical experience with Coroutines in various typical scenarios that you'll surely encounter in your own Android apps.
All aspects of Coroutines framework are covered in this course:
Coroutines as concurrency framework
Suspending vs blocking functions
Coroutine scope, context and jobs hierarchy
Exceptions handling inside Coroutines
Unit testing with Coroutines
Even though the main goal of this course is to give you practical skills, it also covers all the theory required to understand Coroutines framework at a more conceptual level. In particular, you're going to learn what Structured Concurrency is, what benefits it provides and how Coroutines implement this advanced paradigm.
We will go beyond the functionality of Coroutines framework itself and discuss important design considerations that you need to be aware of to write code that both works right now, and will also be maintainable in the long term.
Given the ever-increasing adoption of Kotlin, it's evident that Coroutines are the future of concurrency in Android world. Therefore, knowledge of this framework is going to become a mandatory skill for Android developers going forward. After completing this course, you'll be able to write reliable and maintainable concurrent code in Android projects using Coroutines framework, and you'll be able to answer even the most tricky questions about this framework at job interviews.
So, if you're serious about Android development and you want to master Kotlin Coroutines, this course is a perfect match for you!
