Hysterical of the dreaded NullPointerException that all Java Dev’s continue to grapple with?Tired of writing the mechanical , repetitive , pointlessly verbose Java code? Worry not, there’s a new Language for you and its’ super simple for you(the Java Developers) to learn.


How Kotlin helps reduce the extraneous verbosity of Java code while keeping it same, simple and interoperable with Java.How it can be useful to a developer while writing complex Java code to following complex practices invented by the Gurus of the Language and Android. We start with a simple class example in Kotlin to show the amount of Boilerplate destruction / reduction , it has done and continue to implement the MVP pattern on a fragment to unleash its’ potential.


An Open Mind.
