⭐️ Answer to Last Week's Question
1. What are extension functions?
2. When should they be used?
3. Do you know of any cool examples?
Answer:
  1. Extension functions provide the ability to extend class functionality without having to inherit from the class.
  2. The best use case is to extend the functionality of classes that are not under your control and cannot have this functionality explicitly added to it.
  3. The logcat library has a really neat example. The extension function is on the Any object and therefore can be used to help get the class name of whatever context is calling to log!
