Why Kotlin?

Simplest Version
Name Reading
An “Object-oriented” Hello

What does it look like?

Concise, simple and very easy to read (and write)

package hello
Optional package header
fun main(args: Array<String>) {
Package-level function, which returns Unit and takes an Array of strings as a parameter
println("Hello World!") }
Have you noticed?
Semicolons are optional
