Kotlin Town

Interested in Kotlin? Are you a practitioner?

Kotlin is a statically typed language that runs on JVM that may compile to JavaScript source code or use the LLVM compiler infrastructure. Since then, it’s grown exponentially in popularity. In 2017, Google officially backed Kotlin as the official language for Android.

And that's just the beginning! Join us here at Kotlin Town and be a part of the evolution of this exciting new language.

ANNOUNCEMENT: KOTLIN THURSDAYS ARE BACK!  WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US EVERY THURSDAY FOR NEW FRIENDS AND NEW CONTENT!  CHECK OUT THE KOTLIN THURSDAYS LINK FOR MORE INFO :)

Kotlin is a statically typed language developed by a small JetBrains team in St. Petersburg, Russia that runs on the JVM.  The open-source community is growing quickly, and everyone is invited: novices, hobbyists, industrialists, and experts alike!

Kotlin Features:

  • less verbose than Java
  • can be compiled to JavaScript or run on an LLVM
  • introduces null safety to prevent runtime NPE
  • tool friendly with any IDE or CLI
  • backwards compatible with existing Java projects and libraries
  • supported by a global community 

Our objective here is to provide a friendly forum to meet fellow programmers and exchange ideas about Kotlin as we grow together. 

Here is an extensive list of links to Kotlin projects, libraries and other resourceshttps://kotlin.link/
