In this very rapid pace environment of software development where you must quick spin up (How much time can I afford to devout v.s time to productivity?) on the next greatest thing, particularly in mobile application development, what factors should sway me to learn and utilize Kotlin verses GO Lang for Android mobile development?

I'm curious: how would you use Go for Android development? I know Dart is used for Flutter, but I hadn't heard of Go.

Hi Preston,

I hadn't heard of using Go for Android dev either but looks like you can. However, I'd be careful to rely on it for long-term and/or professional projects because Google focuses on supporting Kotlin and Java for Android. For instance, it's doing a lot to provide better APIs for Kotlin at the moment. Plus, there is a lot more community effort for Kotlin and Java as well.
