Kotlin has already been adopted by some big companies?including Uber, Netflix, Pinterest, and Square?as their primary language for developing Android apps. And in May of 2017, Google announced Kotlin was now a ?first-class language? for writing Android apps, subsequently conducting all of its developers? conferences in it. The message is clear.
So, what?s keeping you from checking out Kotlin for yourself and seeing what it can do?
What you will learn
Java isn't the only language you can use to build Android apps. The most strongly supported JVM language in the Android ecosystem?aside from Java?is Kotlin, an open-source, statically typed language developed by JetBrains.
