Introduction to Kotlin

As one of the newer technologies, Kotlin corrects some inconveniences we see in other, more mature languages. Compared to Java, you can write the same functionality in a more concise way, i.e. using the String template.

Kotlin has built-in methods of operating on text variables, you do not have to write some parts of the code by yourself. Such solutions save you from a number of errors that can happen when writing an application. As a result, writing is faster, and software can be pushed to production in a shorter time.

Kotlin is compatible with Java libraries and interacts with Java in a stable way. With its powerful frameworks, it is a good choice for building microservices.

What is Kotlin programming language?

  • Kotlin is an open-source programming language developed by JetBrains.
  • It was designed as a modern alternative to Java and can be used to create robust mobile applications that are compatible with Android, iOS, macOS, Windows, and web browsers.
  • The language contains features such as type inference, lambdas, coroutines, operator overloading, string templates, data classes, sealed classes and more — all of which make it easier for developers to create powerful applications with fewer lines of code than other languages.

Advantages of Kotlin Development

Kotlin offers numerous advantages over other languages when it comes to developing mobile applications.

• It’s easy to learn – Developers don’t need any experience in Java or any other programming language to start using Kotlin; they just need basic knowledge about object-oriented programming concepts such as classes and functions. Additionally, the syntax is concise and intuitive which makes it easier for developers to write code quickly without sacrificing readability or clarity.

• It’s versatile – Because Kotlin can be used for both Android and iOS platforms as well as web browsers (and soon desktop applications), it makes it possible for developers to create apps that work across multiple platforms without having to learn new languages or frameworks.

• It’s secure – Kotlin has built-in protection against common errors such as null pointer exceptions which helps reduce the risk of security issues in your app. Additionally, the language has been designed with scalability in mind so you can easily add new features or make changes without affecting existing code.

• It’s cost-effective – Since developers don’t have to spend time learning new languages or frameworks when using Kotlin they can focus on creating powerful apps more quickly which saves money in the long run by reducing development time and costs associated with debugging or refactoring code written in other languages.

What can we do with Kotlin?

We decided to use it to boost the portfolio of our client and made a microservice using this technology. It gave them many benefits. Kotlin:

  • makes jumping between frontend and backend for developers using JavaScript easier – thanks to Kotlin’s accessibility;
  • speeds up working on the project: both writing the code and testing the software;
  • facilitates coding, because of Coroutine support, String templates, and other functionalities.

What our partners say about us

After carefully evaluating suppliers, we decided to try a new approach and start working with a near-shore software house. Cooperation with DSS from Hicron was something different, and it turned out to be a great success that brought added value to our company.

With HICRON’s creative ideas and fresh perspective, we reached a new level of our core platform and achieved our business goals.

Many thanks for what you did so far; we are looking forward to more in future!
