Kotlin might play in the big leagues now but this is surely not a unanimous decision. Although this programming language caught the attention of TIOBE and RedMonk, the road to success is paved with challenges. One of them is Stack Overflow.
Cheat sheets are a godsend when you don’t know something – and that will happen no matter how well-prepared you are, which is why these cheat sheets might come in handy. And since we’re here to learn more about programming languages, why not dive deeper into the JVM universe? It will be fun, I promise.
Kotlin/Native v0.3 is here and the most exciting news is that it adds Windows support. Just a quick reminder: Making arbitrary Kotlin/JVM programs runnable on Kotlin/Native or Kotlin/JS is *not* what JetBrains aims to achieve, though — making Kotlin usable throughout a modern application is.
The results of the Kotlin future features survey are here. Respondents were asked to nominate three most expected features, as well as one feature that they would like to be banned (optional). Let’s see what Kotlin users want to keep or ditch.
What a difference a month (and a new title) can make! Last month, Kotlin was not even in Tiobe’s top 50 programming languages and now it occupies the 43rd position.
Our pub quiz series continues with another look at a new programming language. This time, we’re testing your knowledge about Kotlin, the darling of Android that was recently promoted to a first-class language status. Do you know everything there is to know about this fresh-faced static language?
Kotlin is playing in the big leagues now. This programming language is a first-class language on Android and it has been receiving a lot of attention from developers lately. This probably won’t convince you to give it a try but perhaps you’ll change your mind when you see this infographic.
The name of the tool is self-explanatory, for sure. SwiftKotlin is a framework, a command line tool and a Mac application for translating Swift code into Kotlin. However, keep in mind that this is not a magic bullet: its goal is *not* to produce production-ready Kotlin code, but “just a Kotlin translation that will require manual edition.”
The Android team has officially added support for Kotlin, making it a first-class language. For Android developers, this means they will finally have answers to problems such as runtime exceptions and source code verbosity. As of now, Android Studio 3.0 ships with Kotlin out of the box.
Jooby 1.1 is here. Kotlin support is definitely the most exciting feature in this release but it’s not the only reason why you should take a closer look at this micro web framework for Java.
The first bugfix update for Kotlin 1.1 is here — its aim is to address regressions causing incorrect code generation.
It’s been less than two months since Kotlin 1.1 reached beta but now it’s here — Kotlin 1.1 is “a big step forward enabling the use of Kotlin in many new scenarios.” Let’s find out why.
The second beta release of Kotlin 1.1 was published in early February. Now Kotlin 1.1 is ready for its release candidate phase.
