Why Learn Kotlin

  • Expressive and concise:You can do more with less. Express your ideas and reduce the amount of boilerplate code. 67% of professional developers who use Kotlin say Kotlin has increased their productivity.

  • Safer code: Kotlin has many language features to help you avoid common programming mistakes such as null pointer exceptions. Android apps that contain Kotlin code are 20% less likely to crash.

  • Interoperable:Call Java-based code from Kotlin, or call Kotlin from Java-based code. Kotlin is 100% interoperable with the Java programming language, so you can have as little or as much of Kotlin in your project as you want.

  • Structured Concurrency:Kotlin coroutines make asynchronous code as easy to work with as blocking code. Coroutines dramatically simplify background task management for everything from network calls to accessing local data.

Note: Kotlin Android Developers must have a solid knowledge of Java as Kotlin is 100% interoperable with Java and as a developer, you would require knowledge of Java at some level to develop android applications.

  • Designing and developing modern, secure, and feature-rich android applications using Kotlin from scratch
  • Understand requirements and translate designs and wireframes into code
  • Identify and fix bugs to improve performance
  • Coordinating with the design and test teams to create apps with high performance
  • Work with APIs and data sources as per the requirements
  • Help maintain code quality, reusability, and continuous code evaluation
