Final Release Date: October 2016

Kotlin 1.0 was released in February 2016, and since that time it’s been embraced by developers around the world, especially those within the Android community. This course provides an easy introduction to this open source programming language that covers the basics and showcases the language’s interoperability with Java and the JVM platform. A key feature of Kotlin is its similarity to Java, C#, and JavaScript. If you’re familiar with any of these languages, says expert trainer Hadi Hariri, take this course and you’ll understand Kotlin on day one.

  • Get a full tour of language basics and learn to start writing Kotlin code
  • Gain an in-depth understanding of why Android developers flock to Kotlin
  • Discover Kotlin’s easy interoperability with Java frameworks, libraries and the JVM
  • Understand the advantages of Kotlin compared to Java and Scala
  • Employ code examples available via Github

Hadi Hariri is VP of Developer Advocacy at JetBrains, the organization behind the creation of Kotlin. He's been speaking at software industry conferences for over 15 years and is well respected within the open source community. He’s the original author of Spek and Wasabi, amongst other OSS projects. He’s been closely involved in Kotlin for more than four years. Hadi is easily accessible on Twitter at @hhariri .
