Declaring Higher-Order Functions

From Kotlin in Action by Dmitry Jemerov and Svetlana Isakova

The key idea of this article is the concept of higher-order functions. A higher-order function is a function that takes another function as an argument or returns one.

Functional APIs for Collections

From Kotlin in Action by Dmitry Jemerov and Svetlana Isakova

The functional style provides many benefits when it comes to manipulating collections. You can use library functions for most tasks and simplify your code. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the functions in the Kotlin standard library for working with collections.

Compiler-Generated Methods: data classes and class delegation

From Kotlin in Action by Dmitry Jemerov and Svetlana Isakova

The Java platform defines several methods that need to be present in many classes and are usually implemented in a mechanical way, such as equalshashCode, and toString. Fortunately, Java IDEs can automate the generation of these methods, and you usually don’t need to write them by hand. In this case, your codebase contains the boilerplate code. The Kotlin compiler takes a further step: it can perform the mechanical code generation, behind the scenes, without cluttering your source code files with the results.

Meet the Clojure Standard Library

From Clojure Standard Library by Renzo Borgatti

The standard library is one of the most important tools to master a language. One aspect that characterizes the standard library is the fact that it’s already packaged with a language when you first experiment with it. Interestingly, it doesn’t get the amount of attention you’d expect for such an easy-to-reach tool. This article will show you how much wisdom and potential is hidden inside the Clojure standard library.
