Creational Design Patterns in Kotlin

by Kevin Jones

Patterns are the fundamental design and communication toolkit of programmers. This course will teach you the classic Gang of Four creational patterns but with implementations in Kotlin.

What you'll learn

Patterns are the common language of software developers. In this course, Creational Design Patterns in Kotlin, you will learn 'Gang of Four' structural design patterns. First, you will explore why you should use patterns in your code. Then, you will dive into the patterns: Singleton, Factory Method, Abstract Factory, Builder, and Prototype, with examples from the Java and Kotlin libraries. Finally, you will learn to build code examples of each pattern in Kotlin. By the end of this course, you will understand the creational design patterns as outlined by the ‘Gang of Four,' and know how to implement them in Kotlin and use them in your code.
