Hello Coderanch, I can see this thread is a month old but it has a good title, and I don't know how to start my own thread.

Have been using android studio for the last 4 years and really enjoy building applications in my spare time( have a young demanding family and a full time job(in catering) so only spending 5-10 hours a week on coding).

Love using java to develop applications but kotlin looks more productive in the long run.

This course on YouTube looks great  (https://youtu.be/uRyvNKRkwbs )

Does anyone want to join me on this course over the next month?

Welcome to the Ranch

Use the new topic button towards the upper right.
Did you write that tutorial yourself? I don't have the time to go through it.

Thanks Campbell Ritchie, could you move my posts to the android section as a new thread?

It's not my tutorial, just looks up-to-date and a good tutorial on YouTube, I would like to use github and push myself to write clean short code. Would be great to help other developers and inturn they can make comments about my code.

Hi all,
I have started going through the tutorial and put my code up on github.(https://github.com/JasonEdwardesUk/FollowAndroidTutorialWithKotlin). Often I use Linearlayout, only program in code, never use android studio layout editor.

So far I have 4 commits:
First one, is the blank activity and java class.
Second one is a basic kotlin hello world app.
Third one's a toast message when you click the button.
Fourth one, counts the button clicks and displays it to the textview.

hi all,
(commit 5) Improved the code, put a few comments for easy reading
(commit 6) removed most the code, looked into Concepts of OOP Languages(starts about 1 hour in), and I must say, I am very happy going from Java to Kotlin so far.
feels like you can build the same apps with less code, been writing some code and seeing what I can do.
Took me about 1 hour to build the app and fix all the bugs.
Its a lotto lucky dip to pick your numbers.
