Kotlin – The Hottest New Programming Language


Among the plethora of new languages vying for your programming time and attention, there is one whose name is in the public domain. It’s name is a mouthful, but that’s not the problem. As of April of this year, Kotlin is the hottest new kid on the block. In the big picture, it has a ten percent market share in the United States. Despite being a relative unknown, it has already gained a sizable foothold in China. With over 26,000 registered developers and a slew of industry leading companies as part of its fold, the language is poised to break the Chinese glass ceiling. In the long run, it is expected to eke out a respectable profit in the years to come. The only downside is that the language is still a no go for a lot of the country’s large scale startups.
