Should I learn Java or Kotlin in order to develop Android apps?

  1. Kotlin is more concise than Java. Kotlin here gets more points compared to Java. While, writing Java code we have to write lots of boiler-plate (boilerplate is a part of code that has to be included, means it is a necessity to write that code.for e.g: public static void main(String [] args){} ) code which consumes space and time. Hence, Kotlin helps the developer here. Kotlin does not require boilerplate code which makes it a clear, expressive, powerful and concise programming language. Below is an example of the “Hello World” program!
