    Hey, you don't seem to have SSL enabled for the kot.academy site.

    Yes, nearly any short word has some strange meaning in some language. Though I think it is fine since it is "Kot. Academy" (with dot after "kot") so it suggests short from Kotlin.

    kotlin.academy is an existing empty site, pretty sure some poacher is sitting on it hoping someone will pay them a lot of money for the domain

    Well, kotlin.academy was created on 2018-08-02 whereas kot.academy was created on 2018-08-10, but both domains were last updated on the 15th within minutes of each other
    in the comments of the Medium post:
    Kotlin Academy name kind of violated Kotlin trademark, so that was a reason we had to change it.

    Kotlin Academy was violating Kotlin trademark. About alternative names: We had maaaany ideas including kot.ac, kotademy, kacademy (what BDW also sounds close to kaka 😛 ) and many more. After many discussions and asking many people for opinions we chose Kot. Academy.
    Also I bought kotlin.academy during the process 😛 Have much more domains which were our intermediate ideas. Finding a good name for a company is not an easy process. I think that my personal feelings to "Kot" name was also important here since I like this word.
    And I don't really care about german translation. There are many good schools that reference to poop 😄 https://learnwhileyoupoop.com/

    Yup, we know about them too. Our name is Kot. Academy. Also they are small and do totally different thing.
