Kotlin in Action eBook Giveaway
Kotlin in Action
Kotlin is a new programming language targeting the Java platform. It offers on expressiveness and safety without compromising simplicity, seamless interoperability with existing Java code, and great tooling support. Because Kotlin generates regular Java bytecode and works together with existing Java libraries and frameworks, it can be used almost everywhere where Java is used today – for server-side development, Android apps, and much more.
Dmitry Jemerov and Svetlana Isakova, the two authors of Kotlin in Action and driving forces behind the creation of Kotlin, did a great job in explaining the basic concepts like the Kotlin type system, as well as diving into the more advanced topics in the second part of the book, such as higher order functions and creating DSLs. This makes the book suitable for beginner programmers as well as programmers with years of experience in other JVM languages.
In collaboration with Manning Publishing, we’re very happy to be able to give away 5 copies of the Kotlin in Action eBook. The final book is to be released in November (you’ll receive the MEAP version first).
