Codelab - Build Your First Android App in Kotlin

In this Codelab, you'll learn how to build and run your first Android app in Kotlin. Kotlin is a statically typed programming language that runs on the JVM and is completely interoperable with Java. Kotlin is an officially supported language for developing Android apps, along with Java.

What you'll learn

How to use Android Studio to build your app.
How to run your app on a device or in the emulator.
How to add interactive buttons.
How to display a second screen.

What you must know already

This codelab is written for programmers and assumes you know either Java or Kotlin. If you are an experienced programmer and you are adept at reading code, you will likely be able to follow this codelab even if you don't have much experience with Kotlin.

Use Kotlin and Android Studio to write Android apps

You write Android apps in Kotlin or Java using an IDE called Android Studio. Based on JetBrains' IntelliJ IDEA software, Android Studio is an IDE designed specifically for Android development. To create applications in Kotlin, we recommend that you install Android Studio 3.0 or higher.

To work through this codelab, you will need a computer that can run Android Studio (or already has Android Studio installed).
