  2. Why Kotlin? 5 Statically Typed This means that the type

    of every variable and expression is known at compile time. Concise Drastically reduces the boilerplate code that you have been writing in other OOP languages like Java. Explicit Means being specific about your design choices and not hiding anything from the consumers of code. Easy to Learn Kotlin has a very low learning curve. The basic syntax looks a lot like Java. Null-Safe Avoids the most dreaded NullPointerExceptions by supporting nullability as part of its type system. Interoperable with Java You can easily access Java code from Kotlin and vice versa.

    an official programming language for developing Android application in Google IO 2016..
