Description

Many web applications and services are built using the Spring Framework. While Spring is incredibly powerful and useful nobody can accuse it of being lightweight. Many developers look for something that ‘just works’, that does not have too much overhead. In this course, Building Web Applications in Kotlin Using Ktor, you will learn about the framework that more and more JVM developers are looking at as a programming language because of the benefits it has such as support of immutable data and null detection, as well as having less of the bloat of Java. Bring these two together, a lightweight HTTP framework and a nice programming language and you get Ktor. First, you will explore Ktor - an open source project developed by JetBrains, the creators of Kotlin. It is heavily based on Kotlin coroutines and so supports a high degree of asynchrony. Next, you will discover how you can use Ktor to develop both REST and HTML based web sites that are secure and extensible. Finally, you will gain an understanding of how to produce complex server-based applications or standalone HTTP client applications. When you are finished with this course, you will know how to create web applications and REST APIs in Ktor.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, everyone. My name is Kevin Jones. Welcome to my course. Building Web applications in coddling Using Kato. I am a developer and owner of Rock Solid Knowledge, a softer development company based in the United Kingdom. Scotland is a language that is taking the Java on Android world by Storm Kate, or is in http server and client framework. Built using Scotland and written by ___ rings. This cause is an introduction to developing Kato applications a concentrate mostly on service I code, but also cover clients. I topics Some of the major topics we will cover include writing rest AP eyes building websites using templates routing incoming request based on verbs on day http headers. Securing the Web application on the rest FBI using both and using dependency, injection, writing tests and market. By the end of this course, you know how to create secure, scalable, robust Web applications on dressed AP eyes in Kato. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with programming coddling. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Kate or with the building Web applications in coddling using Kate or course at Little site
