Kotlin-the new language for android
Hey friends, are you an Android developer then this news is for you and of course it is a thing common people also must know ,so keep reading.
As all of us know for many years Java and java script were the standard languages used to develop Android but recently Google has announced in its IO that they are changing to kotlin which is superior and flexible when compared to java,but it doesn’t mean that they are going to completely eliminate java.
Just like java kotlin is named after kotlin islands.
In July 2011 JetBrains unveiled Project Kotlin, a new language for the JVM, which had been under development for a year.
This language was especially developed to fulfill the flexibility issues of java.Eventhough many languages were there which fulfill this issues like scala etc their compile time was more and that is why kotlin was developed by jet brains to give us a flexible language with compilation speeds almost equal to java.
Today many other companies are also using kotlin.According to Jetbrains blog, Kotlin is used by Amazon Web Services, Pinterest, Coursera, Netflix, Uber, Square, Trello, and others.
I am not going into deeper details of kotlin and will publish another article about it .
