Kotlin: Using Coroutines
More and more languages are providing support for asynchronous programming. This course will show you how to use the asynchronous programming features of Kotlin allowing you to create applications that are more responsive.
What you'll learn
As a developer, you want to build fast-running applications without the overhead that threads can cause. In this course, Kotlin: Using Coroutines, you'll learn how coroutines provide a way to use ‘lightweight’ threads within a process that let us take advantage of multi-core processors without much of the overhead. First, you'll learn how to create coroutines. Next, you'll explore how to use them to return data. Finally, you'll discover how to use coroutines in environments such as JavaFX and Android, where thread affinity is really an issue. By the end of this course, you'll have a thorough knowledge of how to use coroutines in Kotlin to create fast and efficient applications.
