Coroutines are officially part of the Kotlin standard library starting with version 1.3 and they are very helpful in creating concurrent non-blocking code. They simplify async programming. Coroutines are actually lightweight threads.
It’s time to continue our learning path in Kotlin. The subject covered in this new post is represented by Collections and data operations applied to them.
Collections are actually a set of classes and interfaces that provides high quality implementations of useful data structures and algorithms that help developers to reduce the programming effort and time.
The journey in Kotlin Wonderland continues with an article about classes and objects. Until now we discovered details about Kotlin philosophy, basic types, control flow expressions, null safety and functions.
In my previous article we discovered details about how Kotlin was designed, what is the philosophy behind this new programming language and how its popularity has grown over the past years.
In this article we’re going to continue with some basic concepts from Kotlin Wonderland like the available types, control flow instructions, equality checks and null safety.
At this moment, in the world, there are more than 5000 programming languages available. Now, the first question asked by us, the developers, is why do we need another programming language like Kotlin?
