Delegation in Kotlin
by Philippe Breault, American Express
Ever heard of the phrase “Prefer composition over inheritance”? One of the better patterns to achieve this is “Delegation”. And thankfully, Kotlin has built-in support for this pattern.
This talk will cover class delegation and delegated properties as a means to make your code more readable and reusable. We’ll take a look at both approaches’ strengths, weaknesses, and when you should use them. We will also take a look at the code that is generated under the hood to discuss performance implications.
