About This Class

Kotlin is the modern alternative to Java, and a great starting point for beginners.

This tutorial is targeted at beginners in Kotlin. We start off with the very basics,including all the setup required, from installing the Java JDK to installing IntelliJ for code editing.

Then, you'll write your first code and learn the fundamental principles of programming:

  1. Variables & data types
  2. Loops & conditional statements
  3. Object-orientation in detail
  4. Principles of software design

Also, I'll introduce you to the basic principles of Kotlin and you'll write your first lines of code.
