Kotlin is a JVM language created by JetBrains in 2011. Google declared the official preferred language for Android in 2019. Kotkin is heavily inspired in Scala.

Kotlin makes java much less verbose and has awesome support in sense of IDE thanks to IntelliJ.

So today I want to share a video I made with a good walkthrough through several features of the language in a Maven project. So Let’s get started!
