What does kotlin mean?
In this regard, what is Kotlin and why use it?
Kotlin is a general purpose, open source, statically typed “pragmatic” programming language for the JVM and Android that combines object-oriented and functional programming features. It is focused on interoperability, safety, clarity, and tooling support.
Secondly, is kotlin easier than Java? Kotlin filled that gap ever since it was announced as the official language for Android last year. So yes, Kotlin is a great language. It is robust, statically typed and much less verbose than Java. But if you are an absolute beginner getting your feet wet in the world of programming, begin with Java.
Also question is, where kotlin can be used?
Kotlin can be used for any kind of development, be it server-side, client-side web and Android. With Kotlin/Native currently in the works, support for other platforms such as embedded systems, macOS and iOS is coming.
