What is Kotlin


Kotlin is a statically typed programming language for modern multi-platform applications. According to Android Developer’s Blog, “Kotlin is expressive, concise, extensible, powerful, and a joy to read and write. It has wonderful safety features in terms of nullability and immutability, which aligns with our investments to make Android apps healthy and performant by default.”
