Learning Kotlin 1/10000

It is a nice language to learn but I am not dedicating enough time right now to make the progress I would like.

Little thing I learned last night was the repo for use the Anko “library” in my code.

maven { url "http://dl.bintray.com/kotlin/kotlin-dev" }

Sometimes the simplest thing takes you an hour to figure out. All the examples for Anko that I looked at were partial so they showed the dependency line to add:

compile("org.jetbrains.anko:anko-commons:${anko_version}")

I guess that I have to be happy that I figured something out.

Back to coding a micro-service with Spring Boot and Kotlin…

New Year

There is a new year coming very soon…

Magical number to it so more motivation to create and learn, or so I hope. It is easy to have grand plan for the new year since it is a new start. Everyone loves a new start.

I certainly hope to create more with new technologies that are out there and report more on them here than I have done before.

I should commit to numbers so I can measure my success but that is always a scary idea. It means you have the potential to fail and everyone prefer success stories.

Groovy, Scala, AJAX, more web app coding… There is plenty to learn more about.
