Hello everybody. :-)

It's nice to be welcome back to the place where we first announced we were writing Head First Kotlin, just over 18 months ago.

Kotlin is a great language, and we look forward to your questions.

D+D

Hi Dawn & David Griffiths,

I'm currently learning for the OCAJP, but Kotlin is also on my list of programming languages I want to learn. Therfore I appreciate every new book about that topic. Thank You very much!

Really liking Kotlin so far.  The switch from Java was super easy!

Oh boy, I love those books !!.

Although old, the JAVA book learned me new tricks for cleaner code.

So I hope this new book will finally teach me Kotln for Android (or JAVA).

Hi there Dawn & David Griffiths,

Thank you for writing a Head First book on Kotlin.
Welcome to the Ranch. Hopefully we can challenge you with some good questions on Kotlin.
