Hi Everybody! I've been a member here since early 2000 when I studied for my original Sun (!) Certified Java Programmer exam, but this week let's talk about Kotlin. This feels like a Reddit AMA for a book. So ask away, and give me an excuse to ignore my day job.

Hello Ken, hope you're doing good.

I would like to know your opinion about the differences between Kotlin and Flutter. I know that the first is for native code and the second is an hybrid framework but what are the real advantages in use one or another?

Regards
Lucas H Vicente

Welcome Ken! Kotlin is a hot topic in programming languages (with applications, such as concurrency, reactive programming, etc) and it would be interesting to hear from you about that subject.

I'm aware of the rules, Kenneth. My sentence above is rather declarative than interrogative :-D!
