#introduce-yourself Hello Everybody! My name is Hossam Elbadissi, and my nickname on the web is "Skaldebane". I'm a 16 years old High School student in Morocco, and I've recently switched to Kotlin from Java (a month ago)... Kotlin's amazing features, easy syntax and idiomatic coding made me fall in love with it, and the transition to it was pretty smooth due to its simplicity and similarity to Java. I mostly develop Android applications, though I also like to tinker around with other technologies and try new things... Glad to be here with you, and I'd like to learn more about everything Kotlin, and help shape the future of KotlinLang as it helped me shape mine, in a way or another. Thanks a lot JetBrains, for this amazing language!
