    Never tried Kotlin, so that would be my choice for a personal project.

    how to brag yourself as a kotlin dev :

    1. make app with java

    2. update AS to latest ver.

    3. Convert java code to kotlin

    4. Fix some !! errors

    5. Release (and open source it)

    6. Profit

    @arispan Please go read about what kotlin is, and that you could have used it for android in the last 2 years at least.
    @DucksCanCode Professional Android dev here. I *have* to understand this.

    @magicMirror i know exactly what kotlin is, but i just ask a question on devRant to get opinion from other Android developers. Thats it.

    Folks who really wanna play with Kotlin, they are directly start implementing Kotlin code along with ur Java codebase. So, to sum up, ur project will have both Java and Kotlin codes. This will easiest way to start playing around it. Once compiled, Android doesn't know whether it's Java or Kotlin origin...

    clojure or prolog on jvm

    Well it's still Java because Kotlin has compiler written in Java. Both have some benefits and downsides. But personally, Java all the way

    I was wary as hell of Kotlin when first introduced. Since the official announcement I went all in to give it a shot. Converting a massive (40+ activity) legacy codebase to it and let me tell you the new stuff is a joy to work on. The cross language support is awesome and every class drops 20% - 70% in size. All future development will be Kotlin for me. Get over the weird syntax and you'll love it.
