Kotlin in Action by Dmitry Jemerov
Kotlin is a new programming language targeting the Java platform. It
offers on expressiveness and safety without compromising simplicity,
seamless interoperability with existing Java code, and great tooling
support. Because Kotlin generates regular Java bytecode and works
together with existing Java libraries and frameworks, it can be used
almost everywhere where Java is used today - for server-side
development, Android apps, and much more.
Kotlin in Action takes experienced Java developers from the language
basics all the way through building applications to run on the JVM and
Android devices. Written by core developers of Kotlin, this examplerich
book begins by teaching the basic syntax of the Kotlin language.
Then readers learn how to use features that let them build reusable
abstractions, higher-level functions, libraries, and even entire domain
specific languages. Finally, the book focuses on details of applying
Kotlin in real-world projects, such as build system integration, Android
support and concurrent programming.
