Design patterns enable you as a developer to speed up the development process by providing tested, proven development paradigms. Reusing design patterns helps prevent complex issues that can cause major problems and improves your code base, promotes code reuse, and makes the architecture more robust.
The mission of this book is to ease the adoption of design patterns in Kotlin and provide good practices for programmers.
The book begins by showing you the practical aspects of smarter coding in Kotlin, explaining the basic Kotlin syntax and the impact of design patterns. Furthermore, the book provides an in-depth explanation of the classic design patterns, such as Creational, Structural, and Behavioral, before heading into functional programming. It then takes you through Reactive and Concurrent patterns, teaching you about Streams, Threads, and Coroutines to write better code. Toward the end, you will learn about the latest trends in architecture, exploring the design patterns for microservices, and discuss the considerations when choosing between different architectures, such as microservices and MVC.
By the end of the book, you will be able to efficiently address common problems faced while developing applications and be comfortable working on scalable and maintainable projects of any size.
