Programmer's Guide To Kotlin (I/O Press)
Wednesday, 01 August 2018

Kotlin is attracting attention as "a better Java", especially since Google backed it as a language for Android development. In this book, some chapters of which you can read on this site, Mike James introduces Kotlin to programmers. You don't have to be an expert Java programmer or expert in any other language, but you need to know the basics of programming and using objects. This is the second printing of this book, with an improved layout, minor typos removed and all code double checked to ensure correctness.

<ASIN:1871962536>

Mike James says that while Kotlin is similar to Java and you can pick up much of the language as you go along, a deeper understanding will enable you to create better and more robust programs.
