One of the most intriguing capabilities of Kotlin is its ability to elegantly support concurrent, parallel, and asynchronous programming. Kotlin coroutines is a very powerful library built on top of Kotlin. In this workshop, take a deep dive to learn about what coroutines and continuations are, and how you can make use of them to build highly performant applications.
