Pontifications

  • I'm always looking for a way to make apps on iOS and Android that are command line and / or GUI-less.
  • Perhaps Kotlin fits the bill?
  • The getting started with Kotlin tutorial sounds "easy". Phrase like "fairly simple", "extremely easy" make me LOL. Sure it's easy if you done this 8 million times i.e. tried many many procedural languages, SDKs etc but it's never easy for people if they are new to this crazy "real" programming game. I usually find it easy to get the "Hello World" working but hard to do what I want which is read the sensors like GPS and make graphics which somehow is never part of "Hello World" :-) ! (And I've programmed 10,000 line C applications you think it would be easier for me :-) !

QUOTE from the Kotlin tutorial

It’s extremely easy to start using Kotlin for Android development. In this tutorial we’ll follow the warming up process with Android Studio.
