A lot of people are using their time learning new languages online. Do you plan to learn Kotlin ?

For those who do not know, Google wants you to use Kotlin to build apps for Android. Currently, Java is the _go to_ language for Android apps. Google is adding Kotlin support on its documentation since some time now.

Google is pushing hard. But I don't I will jump into it right now. People still use Java to make Android apps. And that is going to stay that way for a while. One the platform is mature, there is enough content to learn, I will someday try Kotlin too.

When Google promotes something, there is a good chance it gets popular. Mainly because of the resources they have. I saw a few blog posts by Android developer about Kotlin. And a couple of apps to learn Kotlin.

I might give it a try. See how it is.

I am not against learning it. Only when it comes to a point where we cannot avoid it. Otherwise, a lot of Google products have failed. I don't wan to waste my time on every of their new projects.

Kotlin sounds like it belongs in Star Trek next to Klingon

I completely failed to understand that one. You mean harder than Klingon ?

@admin no. I meant they sound similar. A poor (it seems) attempt at sarcasm.

You could have said " Sounds like Kligon ". Thanks for adding the context though 🤝

Would you like to see Android apps move to Kotlin from Java ?

Yes, of course. 🍪
