I got a book on Android and Kotlin by a guy in Spain named Antonio Leiva. I started going through it. I don’t know too much Kotlin or much about Android, do it is a bit of a hard slog sometimes. Here is his github repo for the book. The Android meetup will have a meeting about it on August 1. I plan on being ready.

I have to learn more about Android. What is an Activity? What is an Adapter? I will have to figure this out.

Here is the Android javadoc.

I think Kotlin will be huge. I think making Kotlin an official Android language will change the JVM language landscape. I have a feeling I will not be doing a lot of Groovy in the future.

When Ceylon came out, I did not see what the point of it was. It did not fill a niche that was not filled by Java, Groovy Clojure or Scala. So another JVM language gaining momentum is a bit surprising.

You’re welcome.
