Kotlin 101

Kotlin is a JVM language created by JetBrains in 2011. Google declared the official preferred language for Android in 2019. Kotkin is heavily inspired in Scala. Kotlin claims to have the good parts of scala without having the bad parts. It's also possible to see some Python and Groovy influence as well. Kotlin makes java much less verbose and has awesome support in sense of IDE thanks to IntelliJ. I'm a Scala guy and prefer scala, however, kotling is an interesting choice especially if you are making android native apps. So today I want to share a video I made with a good walkthrough through several features of the language in a Maven project. So Let's get started!
