Description

Kotlin is a new programming language targeting the Java platform. It

almost everywhere where Java is used today - for server-side
development, Android apps, and much more.

basics all the way through building applications to run on the JVM and
Android devices. Written by core developers of Kotlin, this examplerich
book begins by teaching the basic syntax of the Kotlin language.
Then readers learn how to use features that let them build reusable

Kotlin in real-world projects, such as build system integration, Android
support and concurrent programming.
