How to Kotlin – from the Lead Kotlin Language Designer (Google I/O ’18)

Kotlin is similar to the Java programming language, so it’s natural that your Kotlin code looks very much like Java code when you are first start to use the language. While this is fine to begin with, you’re probably not taking full advantage of all the language benefits. In this session, the lead Kotlin language designer will show you how you can write more idiomatic Kotlin, what the benefits are, and help you discover some of the most powerful yet lesser known features of Kotlin.

Watch the keynote and all sessions →

Learn the 10 best practices for moving to a single activity!

1. Use activities as entry points into your app’s UI. When a user goes to launch your app, their launching on activity.

2. Share data between screens by using the activity scope!

3. Use the Navigation Architecture Component to make navigating between destinations even easier.

4. Navigate between destinations with the new gradle plugin, Safe args.

5. Extract your business logic, don’t test at the destination level!

6. Test with FragmentScenario! Fragment 1.1 was just released with a new feature for testing and verifying fragments.

7. Mock the NavController to confirm that you’re calling the right navigate calls.

8. Inject dependencies with FragmentFactory.

9. Use multiple tasks when appropriate. Gasp!

10. Don’t contort your app architecture. Do what’s right for your app.
