Hello! I just started to learn both Kotlin and Android with "Kotlin for Android developments". Could you advice some basic and easy to read book about Android environment? ( i have some general programming experience)
Personally I love headfirst series (
Head First Android Development
) when dealing with new technology as they explain even very complex stuff in very easy way https://www.amazon.co.uk/Head-First-Android-Development-Griffiths/dp/1449362184 If you want something a bit more advanced and practical you could go with
Android Programming for Beginners
as bulging few apps across books will give you more confidence in using Android Studio, Android platform ecosystem and various libraries. It’s java based, however you can easily translate most of the code to Kotlin (simply by pasting it using build-in J2K converter) https://www.packtpub.com/application-development/android-programming-beginners-second-edition There is also this Kotlin book
Learning Kotlin by building Android Applications
however I haven’t tried it yet. It may be goo if you want to go straight to Kotlin + Android. https://www.packtpub.com/application-development/learning-kotlin-building-android-applications When you will be familiarised with Android a bit you could read my book
Android Development with Kotlin
where we will show you how to take advantage of Kotlin in the context of Android development and show you many tricks to make you live as developer easier and more productive 🙂 https://www.packtpub.com/application-development/android-development-kotlin Then
Kotlin In Action
is next thing to read - this will give you deeper understanding of the Kotlin itself (although you could also start with this book to get a good idea about Kotlin and leave “Android” part for latter ) https://www.manning.com/books/kotlin-in-action
