Can we add a Kotlin section to Languages?

Is Kotlin relevant enough to join the ranks of Scala, Groovy, and other JVM languages and get its own forum section under "Languages"?

If you are like me and wondering what is Kotlin, check out https://kotlinlang.org/

Now that we are up and running on the new look and feel, we can add a few hundred new forums. The only thing it would need would be

1: somebody willing to get a few posts in it to get it going.

2: somebody on staff to help with the initial setup - and to help with posts and getting it going.

I would like to help get the section going. Coming from a Java background I am currently getting into Kotlin myself. Naturally I have my fair share of unanswered questions.

It is so.

The brand shiny new Kotlin forum -> https://coderanch.com/forums/f-161/Kotlin

A new 'Getting Started with Kotlin' Wiki -> https://coderanch.com/t/666092/Kotlin/started-Kotlin

Everybody is welcome to edit the Wiki with valuable information for getting up and running with Kotlin and create new topics with questions and other interesting things.

Let's get started!

Awesome. Some of my questions might be a bit open-ended, but I bet they will make for some interesting discussions.

I think we need a Kotlin option when selecting syntax highlighting for code tags, as well

That would be nice wouldn't it. Let's see if we can add that feature to the forum software.
