This book is a great introduction to Kotlin in the context of Android development. I really enjoyed the hands-on approach, and the author has done an amazing job of showcasing the advantages of Kotlin over Java 7. The example application includes most of the components that a real-world Android app would usually have: UI, REST, database, SharedPreferences, unit and instrumentation tests, and working with all of those can be greatly improved with Kotlin, as was demonstrated by this book. Would hi ...more

This book is very good. Until chapter 8 at which point it can be thrown away.

The author does some very irritating things, like:

1. Regularly shows you code but doesn't tell you where it is supposed to go. When looking through the Github repo of the final version of the learning exercise app I realised that he even creates folders for some of the classes he creates and he never mentions it!

2. Regularly the author shows a bit of code without telling you if it is supposed to be used somewhere in the

Una discreta introduzione a Kotlin, ma con tanti difetti:

- spesso non si capisce se il codice riportato sia un esempio o vada davvero inserito da qualche parte nell'applicazione che sta sviluppando

- non dice praticamente mai in che file e/o package, o addirittura classe o funzione, un pezzo di codice vada inserito

- fa continuamente riferimento al repo github, che però ha solo la versione definitiva dell'applicazione, senza branch o tag per vedere lo stato a un certo capitolo del libro, rendendo

This is not a good introduction to Kotlin or Android development. The code is not explained clearly, and is not well-organized. New code is introduced without any indication where it goes in the project. I'd often find that a new function goes in a different class and/or package than the one being discussed. Finally, the code online in a GitHub project is the final result, so you can't see a snapshot of the code that you should have at the end of each chapter.

Meh. Поверхностный пересказ доки, плохо организованный код в примерах (куски кода просто вбрасываются без пояснений куда они были добавлены), встретил пару полезных фишек для разработки под Android.

Вместо книги было бы лучше написать статью в личном бложике, где были бы агрегатированы все трюки kotlin в Android.

A very nice introduction to Kotlin, focusing on its advantages when compared to developing in Java for Android.

توی این کتاب در قالب یه پروژه نشون دادن وضعیت آب‌و‌هوا، شروع میکنه به یاددادن کاتلین.
با توجه به عنوانش بنظرم کورس زیر خیلی جالب‌تر و کارا باشه:
Developing Android app with Kotlin
بخصوص اینکه هم مطالب بیشتری کاور میکنه و هم دولوپر ادووکیت‌های گوگل دارن تدریس میکنن.

البته مث هر کتاب حوزه زبان برنامه‌نویسی، کدهای این کتاب هم بخشی‌شون دیگه منقضی شده. بخصوص قسمت‌های دیتابیس‌اش که الام رووم رو از جت‌پک داریم!

A very good Kotlin book. Lots of useful tips for Android Development. The only drawback I've found so far it's getting deeper into specifics, but having in consideration when the book was published and how fast Kotlin evolves, it's quite complete. Kotlin in Action might be more complete, but Kotlin for Android Developers is written in a very friendly way, so terms are easy to understand. Thank you Antonio!

was a good introduction. My kindle said I read it in about 3 hours, so its a short book! Some kotlin explanations where only written once but then not re-explained when used again which would have been nice - more teaching less "just" explaining.

Friendly but not as functional. Some stuff is outdated already because IT changes way too fast but plenty of it is useful for a Kotlin introduction. I'll probably reread sometime or keep as reference manual.

Good book to those who want to start kotlin in android. Author explains all concepts using an example project which is available in github, which makes it very interesting and easy to understand.

Básicamente, este libro es la biblia para programar apps en Android con Kotlin.

Yo diría que este libro + Dagger + RxJava y ya estaría todo el pescado vendido...

It´s a good book, but I think it´s a little confusing, some of the exercises don´t make sense until you finish the chapter, so you have to read each chapter twice or thrice. Despite this I think is one of the best resources to learn Kotlin right now.
