Derping with Kotlin

Kotlin is a workhorse language built by the folks at JetBrains (you know, the company that gave the world PHPStorm). It’s a superset of Java. In this video by Ross Tuck he tells you more about it and walks you through some of it’s nice features.

If want to learn the language I’veen told by Ross that the Kotlin Koans repo is an excellent way to get started.

Freek Van der Herten is a partner and developer at Spatie, an Antwerp based company that specializes in creating web apps with Laravel. After hours he writes about modern PHP and Laravel on this blog. When not coding he’s probably rehearsing with his kraut rock band. He loves waffles and butterflies.
