Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Marcus Neuhoff, and welcome to my course, Developing Android Applications with Kotlin: The Big Picture. I'm an Android developer with a passion for sharing technical knowledge. This course focuses on why supporting Android as a platform is critical for any successful digital organization and how to develop an application using Kotlin. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include the key benefits that Kotlin provides, such as conciseness, null safety, and functional programming, as well as some of the great building blocks, such as material design. We'll also take a look at some of the fantastic built‑in tools that Android Studio provides. By the end of this course, you'll have a high‑level overview of Android application development, and you will be able to decide whether or not it fits your particular use case before. Beginning this course, it's helpful to be familiar with some basic object‑oriented concepts, but the content will still be valuable if you don't have this knowledge. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into courses on building your first android application. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Android development with the Developing Android Applications with Kotlin course, here at Pluralsight.
