Kotlin Digest 2015

Kotlin’s adoption significantly increased in 2015, and we are especially grateful to our early adopters, who not only used Kotlin, but shared their experiences through different mediums. We’d like to highlight the most notable articles and videos of the past year.

By the way, you can join us on slack and subscribe to the #feed channel, where we push quite a bit of interesting content as it appears.

    Congratulations, Team Kotlin, hope 2016’s another good year for yourselves and the language!

    I’m working on a fairly large Android app, and increased build times aside, it would have been so much more work (and so much less enjoyable) without Kotlin. Thanks!

    There was also a well-written and useful overview of Kotlin in Java Magazine: http://www.oraclejavamagazine-digital.com/javamagazine_twitter/20150910?pg=47#pg47
