It's one of our favorite author's favorite languages. Programmers don't just use Kotlin, they love it. Even Google has adopted it as a first-class language for Android development.
Come see what the excitement is about today with Venkat's Programming Kotlin: Create Elegant, Expressive, and Performant JVM and Android Applications , now in beta from pragprog.com/book/vskotlin .
You'll be glad you did.
Programming Kotlin: Create Elegant, Expressive, and Performant JVM and Android Applications
Fire up your favorite IDE and practice hundreds of examples and exercises to sharpen your Kotlin skills. Learn to build standalone small programs to run as scripts, create type-safe code, and then carry that knowledge forward to create fully object-oriented and functional-style code that's easier to extend. Learn how to program with elegance but without compromising efficiency or performance, and how to use metaprogramming to build highly expressive code and create internal DSLs that exploit the fluency of the language. Explore coroutines, program asynchronously, run automated tests, and intermix Kotlin with Java in your enterprise applications.
This book will help you master one of the few languages that you can use for the entire full stack—from the server to mobile devices—to create performant, concise, and easy to maintain applications.
Now in beta from pragprog.com/book/vskotlin .
