How to become a Kotlin developer?

Kotlin is primarily a pragmatic, modern, cross-platform programming language. It is a general-purpose programming language that has been designed to work in tandem with Java. Kotlin, developed by JetBrains, has a more concise syntax than other languages and is quickly gaining popularity among the Android developer community.

Kotlin has many outstanding features, including easy debugging and interoperability with Java, in addition to its concise and secure code. It's safe to use, fast, and simple to keep up with. Furthermore, it increases developer productivity and facilitates cross-platform development.

Given the popularity of the language, remote Kotlin developer jobs have seen an exponential increase.

What is the scope of Kotlin development?

Kotlin's syntax is simple to grasp for newcomers, and it includes a slew of powerful features. Its most notable features are security, clean compact syntax, general-purpose, and more. It can be an excellent language for experienced programmers to learn. The popularity of Kotlin's recent adoption in the Android app development sphere made people speculate that it might take over from Java for Android developments.

Recently, Google has announced that they are now using Kotlin for making most of their applications. Companies are gradually shifting from Java to Kotlin, clearly stating its significance and scope in the technical industry. By extension, the demand for remote Kotlin developer jobs has risen significantly in recent times.

What are the roles and responsibilities of a Kotlin developer?

Kotlin can be used both on the source and client sides of the applications. It is simple to use on all operating systems, including iOS, macOS, and embedded systems. People use it for developing mobile and server-side applications, client-side with JavaFX or JavaScript, data science, and more.
Kotlin requires less code and has fewer bugs. It also supports test-driven development, which further reduces the number of bugs. Even if you make a mistake while writing the code, you can quickly correct it. Because of its shortcode and fewer bugs, it is simple to maintain and can thus be handled by a new team. It also supports multiple plugins, making life much easier. With so many advantages, every programmer prefers to work with this language.
Usually, Kotlin developers should have the following capabilities:

  • Have in-depth knowledge of Java, as Java and Kotlin are interpolable and helps to develop android applications
  • Design feature-rich applications using Kotlin from the ground up
  • Evaluate code regularly to improve quality and reusability
  • Implement overall security and new technologies to improve user experience
  • Resolve bugs to increase performance
  • Translate wireframes into code and work with APIs as per the need
  • Create and maintain robust Android applications with back-end integration
  • Coordinate with other teams to plan and integrate new features

How to become a Kotlin developer?

When it comes to pursuing a career in Kotlin development, there are multiple paths you can take. Whether or not you're a graduate or have already worked professionally in the industry, you can have a lucrative career as a Kotlin developer with the necessary skillset. However, your Kotlin developer resume must show a Bachelor’s/Master’s degree in technical disciplines to get remote Kotlin developer jobs.

Besides a degree and knowledge of computer science, to become a Kotlin developer, you should be fluent in both Kotlin and Java, as these are the main programming languages required. As a result, you should write clear, readable, and concise code in these languages. Also, extensive experience in Android app development is needed as it is the foundation for everything you will implement.

Lastly, knowing about the latest mobile app trends, Android updates, and other emerging technologies would be an added advantage.

Now, let us take a look at the skills you require to become a successful Kotlin developer:

Skills required to become a Kotlin developer

The first step is to have a strong foundation in the required skills to get high-paying Kotlin developers jobs. Here is what you need to know!

1. Java

Java is the most popular object-oriented programming language out there. Java has a simple structure and is easy to use and debug. It has gained tremendous traction recently, mainly because it has certain security features that make robust applications possible. By using Java, you can develop many types of applications for various uses. These uses include web services, desktop apps, network apps, and more.

2. Kotlin

Kotlin is an object-oriented language that runs on the Java Virtual Machine. It is compatible with Java and offers more out of the box through its additional functionality for data classes, null safety, and companion objects. Kotlin is an expressive modern language that is easy to read and write. You can use it for server-side development or Android apps using their Native technology, which compiles your Kotlin code into JavaScript for cross-platform runtime. One of its most exciting features is how easy it is to convert traditional Java libraries into their Kotlin equivalent, which you can then reuse in any future project

3. XML

XML finds uses in developing portable web and eCommerce applications. You can create interactive and customizable pages to improve the user interface. XML enables universal data access, making it easier for applications and devices of all types to use, store, transmit, and display data. XML offers an XSL Transformation processor that comes with its own set of formatting rules. This processor specifies how the data should appear when displayed on-screen or printed on paper.

4. RESTful Services/APIs

Representational State Transfer (REST) is an architecture that helps simplify data exchanges over the World Wide Web. It uses the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) and HTTP to connect to back-end web services and application programming interfaces (APIs). So be knowledgeable of RESTful services and APIs to develop frameworks as needed by the project.

5. SQL

SQL acts as a medium to communicate with a database. It is the primary language used for relational database management systems. Using SQL statements, you can perform various tasks such as updating the data on the database or retrieving the data from the database.

6. GWT

GWT is an open-source web toolkit for creating and maintaining JavaScript front-end applications in Java. As a developer, you can use the GWT development toolkit to seamlessly build and optimize complex browser-based applications without being an expert in JavaScript or XMLHttpRequest. This makes the development and debugging of Ajax applications simpler.

How to get remote Kotlin developer jobs?

Developers are a lot like athletes. To excel at their craft, they have to practice effectively and consistently. They also need to work hard enough that their skills grow gradually over time. In that regard, there are two significant factors that developers must focus on for that progress to happen: the support of someone who is more experienced and effective in practice techniques while you're practicing. As a developer, you need to know how much to practice - so make sure there is someone on hand who will help you out and keep an eye out for any signs of burnout!
