I would like to announce, that Packt publishing started distribution of new book "Android Development with Kotlin" by @igor.wojda and @marcinmoskala. We've been working on this book for last 12 months. Book is mainly addressed to Android developers who wants to migrate into Kotlin and explore it’s potential.

marcinmoskala: Is this book completely noob friendly? I’m currently using Cordova and would like to switch to native at some point, but have no prior native Android experience.
From the description it looks like it’s more geared towards learning Kotlin

If you are programmer in JS then this knowledge should be enough to understand Kotlin features described in the book. We've been writing this book having in mind that also JS or Swift developers who wants to switch to Android and Kotlin might be interested. But I would suggest to start from some Android tutorial, because we are assuming basic knowledge about Android ecosystem. Also most of examples are ways to improve Android development with Kotlin, so this book will be most profitable for developers who understand Android problems.
