In this video, take a look at suspending functions and how you can take advantage of them. Convert the work contained in a suspending lambda to a separate suspending function.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look at suspending functions…and how we can take advantage of them.…We're here inside of the CoroutinesAsync class…and we're going to add a new function…in order to test suspending functions.…Let's go ahead and copy what we have here…inside of our previous function, usingAsyncTwice,…and we'll just paste it at the bottom of the class file,…and let's rename this one to usingAsyncWithSuspendFunction.…
Then, instead of having two asynchronous coroutines…nested inside, let's just pair this down to one.…We'll delete what we have here in our second one,…and let's go ahead and get rid of this summation…and just change it to the result instead of the sum.…Now, we're back to having just one inner coroutine.…The next thing we want to do is extract out the code…inside of our async lambda to a new function.…Let's highlight the work that we have here…inside of our async lambda from line 71 to 73,…and we're just going to create a new function called ourWork.…
It's going to return an integer,…and then we'll paste that code that we have inside,…
