Kotlin is a cross-platform, statically typed programming language that can be used both for server-side and client-side development. It is fully interoperable with Java, meaning Kotlin code can be seamlessly integrated with existing Java codebases. Kotlin was developed by JetBrains and was first released in 2011. It offers modern language features such as null safety, type inference, and lambda expressions, which make it more concise, safe, and expressive compared to Java. Kotlin can be compiled to JVM bytecode, JavaScript, and native code, giving it the ability to run on a wide range of platforms. One of Kotlin's notable features is its focus on reducing boilerplate code, making it more efficient and productive for developers. It has gained significant popularity in the Android development community due to its improved syntax and conciseness compared to Java. The official Kotlin command-line compiler, called kotlinc, is used to compile Kotlin source code into executable files or bytecode. The command-line tool allows developers to write and compile Kotlin code without the need for an integrated development environment (IDE). Kotlinc provides a variety of options and configuration settings, enabling developers to customize the compilation process and produce optimized output.
