Abstract:

"Your programming language should be expressive, safe, flexible, and intuitive, and Kotlin checks all the boxes! This elegant JVM language integrates seamlessly with Java, and makes it a breeze to switch between OO and functional styles of programming. It's also fully supported by Google as a first-class Android language. Master the powerful techniques in this unique book, and you'll be able to take on new challenges with increased confidence and skill. "The Joy of Kotlin" teaches you to write comprehensible, easy-to-maintain, safe programs with Kotlin. In this expert guide, seasoned engineer Pierre-Yves Saumont teaches you to approach common programming challenges with a fresh, FP-inspired perspective. As you work through the many examples, you'll dive deep into handling errors and data properly, managing state, and taking advantage of laziness. Tha author's down-to-earth examples and experience-driven insights will make you a better, and more joyful developer!"--
