Clean Code with Kotlin

With Kotlin we can write concise, expressive, and safe code. Sounds like clean code, doesn’t it?

In this article we will recap what clean code is, we will highlight the importance of defining meaningful names, and how to write clean functions and classes.

Finally, we will be able to learn more about the advantages of immutability, how to handle the errors in Kotlin, and what are the best practices in terms of writing tests. By the end of this blog post, you will better understand what clean code means and learn a series of tips and tricks ready to be applied in your code.

“Coding is not a sprint, is a marathon” so let’s exercise together our clean code skills.
