After that, you’ll walk through the basics of how to implement types in Kotlin and describe the app’s object model using Kotlin. Next, you’ll see how to create an interactive user experience and connect that experience to your Kotlin code. From there, you’ll create a multi-screen user experience and pass information between screens and use the options menu to create action bar actions. Finally, you’ll learn how to effectively cooperate with the lifecycle of Android activities and how save both persistent data and instance data. By the end of the course, you'll have successfully created an Android app using Kotlin and you will have a solid grounding in the fundamentals of Android app development with Kotlin.
