About the Book
In compact chapters, concentrating on the essentials, you'll get to know Kotlin within a few afternoons or some subway rides, and you'll soon be able to use it to write your own programs and apps.
"Kotlin Compact" is officially endorsed by JetBrains, the creators of Kotlin itself, on their "books about Kotlin" page!
As the title suggests, "Kotlin Compact" is not explicitly an all-encompassing work on Kotlin. Rather, it focuses on the necessary foundations and best features Kotlin has to offer, and which are most valuable when getting started with Kotlin development.
