Kotlin development benefits

In 2016, Kotlin was introduced as a more cost-effective and secure alternative to Java. So far, it has gained a solid position among developers, startups, and large companies. And here’s why:

  1. 40% less code lines

    Kotlin is one of the most concise programming languages and allows developers to write more compact and readable code compared to Java. As a result, your firm gets cost-effective apps with faster delivery.

  2. Great type-safety

    Kotlin leaves no room for bugs and errors caused by NullPointerExceptions (NPEs) which often cause huge financial losses. As a result, development time and costs are significantly reduced.

  3. 100% Java interoperability

    Your company can seamlessly switch from the old Java-powered codebase to Kotlin one. The latter can smoothly interact with Java code directly or via an out-of-the-box converter in the IDE environment, and supports all Java classes and libraries.

  4. Multiplatform support

    Around 70% of the code isn’t platform-specific thanks to Kotlin Multiplatform. It provides the opportunity of reusing the codebase between all major mobile and desktop OSes including Android, iOS, Windows, macOs, Linux.

  5. Full stack development

    Kotlin Multiplatform also allows both back and frontend creation. This speeds up the development process, simplifies code support and testing.

  6. Top-3 programming languages among businesses

    Kotlin is used by companies from various industries for projects of any complexity: from MVP to high-load apps with numerous third-party integrations
