What Is Kotlin- the Official Language Of Android?
Kotlin is the official programming language for Android app development. It is a versatile and modern language that offers many benefits to developers, including improved readability, concise syntax, and enhanced safety features. Developers use Kotlin to create Android applications that are efficient, reliable, and feature-rich.
From now, Android Studio 3.0 ships with Kotlin out of the box so the developers do not have to install any extra plug-in, tools & there will be no compatibility issues. Developers can go straight into programming with Kotlin as both Jetbrains & Google will provide support for android development in Kotlin.
Kotlin supports other platforms like Kotlin/JVM for server and desktop, Kotlin/JS, and Kotlin/Native. Jetbrains has visioned Kotlin as the uniform tool for end-to-end development of various applications bridging various platforms with the same language. This includes full-stack web applications, Android and iOS clients, embedded/IoT.
Jetbrains has entered into a non-profit partnership with google for a foundation for kotlin.
