Ok Kotlin finally time to play a little. This is the start of my active journey with Kotlin actually doing something with it for Android. After a lot of articles read, a lot of videos watched and also going through some books now it’s time to actually build something with it.
The plan is to make a series of articles sharing my journey in trying stuff with Kotlin and Android. I think the ultimate goal might be to get a nice template project or a set of useful samples out of this, that anyone can easily pick up later and benefit from.
This is article zero and it’s basically just the introduction for the series. Find below the github project I created to track the series and where you can check the code for each article, and also the index for all the articles and in the end some nice resources that I enjoyed looking into prior to this.
And that’s it for today. Hope you can enjoy this series, the plan is to release an article every 2 weeks but let’s see how that goes 😃. If you like it give some 👏, and share your ideas and suggestions. See you in playground number 1.
