Kotlin has been making waves ever since it was open sourced by JetBrains in 2011; it has been praised by developers across the world and is already being adopted by companies. This video provides a detailed introduction to Kotlin that shows you all its features and will enable you to write Kotlin code to production. We start with the basics: get you familiar with running Kotlin code, setting up, tools, and instructions that you can use to write basic programs. Next, we cover object oriented code: functions and properties – all while using Kotlin’s new features.

Brandan proposed and created the first Android programming course at the University of Cincinnati, and has been teaching it ever since. He reapplied this course and taught it at Northwestern University’s School of Continuing Studies as well.
Brandan is the creator of the Android app PlantPlaces .com Mobile, which allows users to search for plants by color, and GPS plants. He wrote this app in 2012, using TDD principles. He used selected JSON feeds from that app in the examples in this video course.
Brandan’s mix of both academic and professional experience means that he brings real-world concepts to the classroom. Most of his high level classes include hands on experience with unit testing, scrum, and distributed version control systems.
Brandan holds a BS in Accounting and Management Information Systems from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. He also earned a BS in Horticulture from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning, and a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Cincinnati, Lindner College of Business, with concentrations in Operations Management and Real Estate Finance.
