What is Koltlin?
The Kotlin was introduced by the famous Software company called JetBrains (IntelliJ Software), it is a new language for the JVM. Kotlin is also a cross-platform programming language to perform the checking of data types at compile time. It is very easy to learn a person having the basic knowledge about Java that you will have the capability to learn Kotlin in limited time.
The new trend in Kotlin is that it has gained more popularity while Google has announced it as its official language for Android Development.
Let me tell you why !
Why should you learn Kotlin?
We can reduce 10–15 lines of java code to 3–4 lines in Kotlin, which one is better ? Java or Kotlin? Definitely Kotlin right? Yes, Because Kotlin can reduce the number of boilerplate codes used in Java, which means that the same section of codes are repeated in many places with no alteration. That’s why Kotlin differs from Java while on programming, Kotlin is very safe to use on programming which means coding with Kotlin language reduces the NullPointerExecptions that occur during the execution of a program and also Kotlin is interoperable such as we can call the existing Java code from Kotlin and Kotlin code can be used from Java too. So you can seek for a good training to build your career in Kotlin.
What is the Speciality of Kotlin?
We have already discussed the interoperability of Kotlin that mainly support Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and works with existing Java libraries. And also a special thing about Kotlin is its functional programming. This gives the developers more freedom and allows them to be more expressive due to its declarative style programming. It does support object-oriented programming.
What can we create?
Kotlin can be used for creating whichever comes to mind. Some of the famous projects that uses Kotlin is Pinterest, Flipboard, Square, Zomato, Netflix etc..
