Kotlin for Java Developers
What you'll learn
- Create Kotlin programs
- Understand the differences between Java and Kotlin
- Understand how Java and Kotlin programs interoperate
- Ideally, have at least a basic knowledge of Java (not essential)
- A computer running Windows, Mac OS X or Linux
Are you a Java developer wondering if you need to learn Kotlin?
Maybe you are an experienced Java developer who wants to learn Kotlin quickly, to be prepared for future project work.
Perhaps instead, you're an Android app developer who knows Java well, but you want to be able to move forward with Kotlin for new Android development work.
Well, with Google's recent focus on Kotlin for Android app development, this language has been launched into the mainstream, and you can be sure you will be seeing a lot more about it. It's also highly likely that you will be working with Kotlin in your Java projects in the near future.
Because Kotlin works anywhere Java works, and can even be called from Java code (and vice-versa), this brings with it a massive opportunity for Java developers. Being able to work with both Java and Kotlin is going to give you a massive advantage over other programmers.
This course was designed to teach Java developers how to use Kotlin in the shortest possible time.
Sarah Ettritch, your course instructor, is an experienced Java and Kotlin developer, with many years of software development experience. She is uniquely qualified to teach you how to use this powerful and exciting language.
While you won't learn Android app development in this course, you will learn Kotlin, and also the key differences between Kotlin and Java.
There is an entire section dedicated to Java interoperability, which is vital for all Java developers to learn.
In addition, the Kotlin syntax is explored in detail.
Over sixteen hours of videos are included in the course, making it one of the most comprehensive courses on the language.
Now is the perfect time for you to learn Kotlin, while it's relatively new. It has been around for a while, but only now is it being thrust into the limelight.
It's absolutely vital for Java developers to learn Kotlin to maximize future career opportunities. Objective-C developers who failed to transition to Swift, or were too slow doing so, were left behind. Don't make the same mistake they did!
If you are ready to greatly increase your career prospects by adding Kotlin experience to your skills and knowledge, then sign up for the course today.
Who this course is for:
- Java programmers wanting to learn Kotlin
Tim's been a professional software developer for close to 40 years. During his career, he has worked for major companies such as Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, and Saab.
His video courses are used to train developers in major companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Paypal, VW, Pitney Bowes, IBM, and T-Mobile just to name a few (via the Udemy for Business program).
What makes Tim unique is his professional programming career - many instructors have never programmed professionally, let alone had a distinguished professional development career like Tim.
Tim has trained over 1.24 million students how to program, way more than a typical IT Professor at a college does in a lifetime.
In fact, Tim's courses are often purchased by students struggling to get through college programming courses.
"I am learning a lot about Java very quickly. I wish my college courses worked this way, they drag the same amount of material out over months." - Thomas Neal
"I love this guy. I'm in school for java right now at a local college and I bought this course hoping it would help clarify the fuzzy areas of my coursework. There's no comparison. Every time I get lost in my textbook, I watch a couple more of these videos and I'm right back on track. He explains everything so perfectly. It sinks right in." - Kristen Andreani
"Tim is a great instructor, I have more courses from him and all are great. This one really helped me with my understanding of Java from the very beginnings. In fact, I was able to find a job as Java developer with the knowledge gained from this course, so I basically owe Mr. Buchalka my career" - Daniel KubÃ¡nyi
Tim's mission is simple: to make a difference in your life by helping you to become a software developer. Tim does that through his Java, Python, C#, Spring Framework, and Android development courses.
When Tim started programming over thirty-five years ago, there was no online video training.
There was no "easy" way to learn. The Internet, in its current form, didn't exist, and as a result, Tim couldn't "Google" for help, or watch videos on Youtube.
After learning the hard way, Tim was determined to become the best teacher he could, and to make his training as painless as possible, so that you, or anyone else with the desire to become a software developer, could become one.
In between doing that, Tim spent the best part of those years as a professional software developer writing applications in Java and a variety of other languages. In addition, he spent many years with J2EE (as it was then known), now known as Java Enterprise Edition (JEE), designing and developing enterprise applications.
Tim is relatively unique, in that he is a professional, experienced software developer who also has exceptional teaching skills.
Many instructors have no work experience in the field. Make sure the person you trust with your education is a real expert with substantial previous professional experience.
The bottom line for you is, when taking any of Tim's courses, is that you will learn the right way to do things from an expert, in the shortest possible amount of time.
Tim's Java, Android, and Python courses, here on Udemy are of the highest quality as reviewed by his students. Ten's of thousands of students, just like you, have taken his classes, thousands have left glowing reviews, and many have gone on to full-time jobs, or consulting/freelancing opportunities after completing one of his courses.
Tim recently placed in the top ten Udemy instructors as voted for by his students and Udemy themselves.
What does all of this mean for you?
You can have full confidence that Tim's courses are of exceptional quality, and that he can teach you to become a software developer if you have the desire to become one.
Are you ready to start? You can get started today. No previous experience is necessary.
In 2021, video training is the quickest way to learn, and with Tim's experience and training, it is possible for you to become a software developer. You can do this.

I’ve been a software developer for over 14 years (12 commercially), creating Desktop, Web, and Mobile applications during this time.
I am a fully certified Java Developer (Java Oracle Certificate Associate programmer Java SE 8) and have a lot of experience with Java, JPA, Java Enterprise Edition, Spring, Spring Boot, Maven, Gradle, and JavaFX.
In addition, I’ve been heavily involved in game development and frameworks used to create games. I am Unity Certified Expert Programmer.
I am an official developer contributor for LibGDX (a very popular game framework) and am heavily experienced with it, as well as AndEngine, Unity, and Unreal engine.
Teaching people and sharing my knowledge is a real passion of mine, and I really enjoy providing information that is not accessible anywhere else.
I create training material that actually teaches you how to program and how things work! An important distinction since many tutorials on the Internet, allow you to follow along blindly but fail to explain things so that you can apply this to other projects in the future.
If you want to truly understand how things work and become a programmer, you are in the right place.
I'm On A Quest To Give You The Education You Never Received At School.
