Hello Kotlin! - Your Kotlin App in a few minutes!

In the previous post, I talked you about Antonio Leiva’s Kotlin book and how to create a blog in a few minutes. In this post, I’m going to explain to you how I created my first Kotlin App in a few minutes!

I bought his book because I want the best sources and reading when I improve my skills, by the way, Mark Murphy updated his android Development book to version 8.5, I’m also a big fan.

Really it took me longer because I was also reading about the new build cache feature of Gradle 3.5, but I finally used the 3.3 version this time.

If you create a new Android Studio project following the free guide I’m going to share with you, you’ll find some differences like the new constraint layout but it’s very simple to follow anyway, just create a new LinearLayout.

I would like to add my first lines of code to this blog, I already added Disqus for comments, but I’m going to eat dinner, and the real secret to creating the app so fast it’s just to use this free guide! (and don’t read my long posts).

Happy Coding!
