About this book

Build Android apps and learn the essentials of the popular Kotlin programming language and APIs. This book will teach you the key Kotlin skills and techniques important for creating your very own Android apps. Apart from introducing Kotlin programming, Learn Kotlin for Android Development stresses clean code principles and introduces object-oriented and functional programming as a starting point for developing Android apps.
