Earlier this year, I got an opportunity to work on Big Nerd Ranch’s acclaimed Guide to Kotlin Programming. David and Josh, the authors of the first edition, had already put together a great set of materials, and it was an exciting task to update them for the next generation of Kotlin learners.

Now that we’re inches away from crossing the finish line, I’m thrilled to tell you all about the second edition of Kotlin Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide.

The second edition of the book has a number of improvements since its first installation. First, we’ve updated our materials for Kotlin 1.5 and IntelliJ 2021.2. We’ve also added new material to cover the latest and greatest features in Kotlin, including Kotlin Multiplatform, Coroutines, Channels, Flows, inline classes, and unsigned numeric types. If you’ve been thinking about learning Kotlin and want a step-by-step guide to walk you through the language, then look no further.

For more information about the book, check out Big Nerd Ranch’s official announcement of the second edition. You can also learn more about Big Nerd Ranch’s other books if you’re interested in learning more beyond Kotlin.

Kotlin Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide, Second Edition is available for pre-order now on InformIT and Amazon. The eBook will be available on September 21st, and printed copies will be available starting late October.

Happy coding!
