What is Kotlin? Kotlin is a modern programming language that makes writing code easier and more fun. It’s kind of like a smoother, more efficient version of Java, which is one of the most widely used programming languages. Kotlin is important because it helps developers write cleaner, safer code faster. Plus, it works seamlessly with Java, so you can use it alongside your existing Java projects without any hassle. It’s especially popular for building Android apps, but it can be used for all sorts of software development projects.
