Long Description

Kotlin is a new programming language targeting the Java platform. Itoffers on expressiveness and safety without compromising simplicity,seamless interoperability with existing Java code, and great toolingsupport. Because Kotlin generates regular Java bytecode and workstogether with existing Java libraries and frameworks, it can be usedalmost everywhere where Java is used today - for server-sidedevelopment, Android apps, and much more. Kotlin in Action takes experienced Java developers from the languagebasics all the way through building applications to run on the JVM andAndroid devices. Written by core developers of Kotlin, this examplerichbook begins by teaching the basic syntax of the Kotlin language.Then readers learn how to use features that let them build reusableabstractions, higher-level functions, libraries, and even entire domainspecific languages. Finally, the book focuses on details of applyingKotlin in real-world projects, such as build system integration, Androidsupport and concurrent programming.
