Kotlin is a cross-platform, statically typed, general-purpose programming language with type inference (cit. Wikipedia). Currently developed and supported by JetBrains, Kotlin's popularity has been skyrocketing in the last years.

Since its release, the language has been used by developers to write a variety of software: from Android apps to backend services, from native code to web applications. The Kotlin developer community is really active online to build open source libraries, tools, and educational resources to support the evolution of the language. Since 2017, Kotlin has also been officially supported for Android development, and in 2019 Google designated Kotlin the preferred language for Android development. In 2020, the Kotlin ecosystem evolved to embrace multiplatform development with projects like Jetpack Compose Desktop and KMM (Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile).

If you're interested in Kotlin, Android app development, Multiplatform development, Jetpack Compose, Kotlin/Native, Coroutines, Functional Programming, Kotlin Scripting, IoT, Data Science, Libraries, and Frameworks in Kotlin — or if you just want to connect with the Kotlin community — the Kotlin DevRoom is for you!
