Teach yourself programming starting with the basics and progressing to a series of exciting projects using Kotlin, one of today’s hottest programming languages. This book starts with the absolute basics and then introduces just enough syntax to get into some fascinating projects. These include text processing:a statistical analysis of Jane Austen’s novels, solving anagrams, and working with palindromes; image processing:cropping and resizing images, and pixel transformation; and computer vision:finding digits, parsing images, and reading speed signs.
The projects are developed in tiny steps and complete solutions are provided. Some of these projects include core data science concepts, giving you skills in one of the most important areas of modern programming. Along the way you’ll cover functional programming, object-oriented programming (OOP), refactoring, and writing unit tests.
After reading Learn to Program with Kotlin, you’ll come away with practical insights and code to get you started right away with programming using Kotlin for your own projects.
