Apple has introduced “a better language” for iOS developers. But what options do we have for Android? Surely Kotlin should be under consideration! Android Studio is now based on Intellij Idea, the “native” environment for Kotlin.

Kotlin is a modern language for industry. It can help you reduce the amount of code you write for Android applications and at the same time make it readable and more maintainable.

Also we’ll look at a DSL for type-safe dynamic layouts and a simple extension plugin that helps to avoid writing ‘findViewById()’ all the time.
