Kotlin is a young programming language that is already being used by a growing number of software developers worldwide. The tool manufacturer JetBrains developed it and presented it to the public for the first time in 2011. Today Kotlin is considered a mature programming language. They are particularly suitable for use in projects that were previously implemented in Java. In addition, developers use the language to implement mobile solutions. When it comes to creating Android applications, Kotlin is now regarded as the "first-class" language.
Let's look at some of the features that make Kotlin different from Java and allow us at Hyperlink InfoSystem to program by writing less code.
Once you check if an object is of a certain type, you don't need to do an explicit casting later to use the properties of that type. Kotlin assumes that if the check succeeds, the object becomes of the concrete kind immediately and treats it as such.
The organization of your code in packages no longer needs to follow the folder structure in your directory.
Kotlin does not have the concept of null. This implies that you will never have an exception of the type NullPointerException. Avoiding null is proven to save a lot of time in development, and there are safer ways to indicate the absence of value.
In Kotlin, functions are on the same level as classes. You can define functions without first creating a class for them. In addition, functions can receive another function as an argument (or return one as a result), allowing a high functional programming level. There is also support for anonymous lambdas/functions.
Kotlin allows you to add new methods to an existing class without having to create the corresponding subclass. This enables the new way to run on all instances of the original class and not just on those of the subclass that would be required to create in Java. In the same way, Kotlin also allows you to add new properties.
These are some of the features that we will integrate into your projects.
The amount of data that is generated on social media is massive. If your business wants to take advantage of this opportunity, we are best suited to provide it for you.
Our applications are well optimized to perform excellently on various android devices by different manufacturers.
With our years of experience, we've come to realize that users are opposed to filling long forms. We create simple forms for registration and login.
Creating stunning and intuitive user interfaces in mobile apps is a no brainer. This is one of the major determinants of the success of an application. All the successful applications have easy-to-use user interfaces.
We ensure that users are satisfied with all our apps. That is why we are a leading kotlin development in UK.
Jetbrains pursues the goal of establishing Kotlin on all devices and platforms, and with Kotlin / Native offers the possibility of using a common, native code base for the most common operating systems:
Attempts have been made in the past to establish another JVM language with Scala, Groovy and Clojure. It is quite possible that Kotlin will achieve greater success through Jetbrain's multi-platform developments and through Google's support.
There is a little risk associated with replacing individual parts of a Java application with Kotlin due to the high stability and compatibility of Kotlin. The code can still be read and maintained without problems for Java developers.
