Kotlin Coroutine Channels and Flows

by Kevin Jones

This course will teach you how to use coroutine channels and flows to compose asynchronous programs.

What you'll learn

In this course, Kotlin Coroutine Channels and Flows, you’ll learn to communicate between coroutines using hot and cold streams of data. First, you’ll explore how to transfer data from a ‘hot’ data source using coroutine channels. Next, you’ll discover using flows to set up a cold data source. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of channels and flows needed to compose asynchronous and event-based programs.
