Programming: Building Apps Or Teaching?

Economics is something complicated and that we do not always pay close attention to it. We are educated to go through the normal route of life without questioning a lot of things that we take as "natural".

In today's video, I'm going to ask the question: Is it more profitable to make a career building apps or teaching?

Although you might not like the answer, that's how things roll...

Building An Audience With No Budget

If you have an audience, you have power. This is the truth in the 21st century and how things are working in the digital age.

Just take a quick look at the influencers around you. People, from YouTubers to marketers, have their audience pretty much established and this is their mine gold. So, in order to succeed, as a programmer or any other type of thing, you need to have an online presence.

However, building an audience takes time and, some people would say... Money. But... Is this right?

Is it possible to build an audience with NO BUDGET?

Kotlin: The Future Of Android Development?

Have you ever heard of Kotlin? Kotling has been picked as the official programming language for Android development.

"We believe this is a great step for Kotlin, and fantastic news for Android developers as well as the rest of our community. We’re thrilled with the opportunities this opens up.

For Android developers, Kotlin support is a chance to use a modern and powerful language, helping solve common headaches such as runtime exceptions and source code verbosity. Kotlin is easy to get started with and can be gradually introduced into existing projects, which means that your existing skills and technology investments are preserved.

Starting now, Android Studio 3.0 ships with Kotlin out of the box, meaning Android developers no longer need to install any extras or worry about compatibility. It also means that moving forward, you can rest assured that both JetBrains and Google will be supporting Android development in Kotlin.

In case you are concerned about other platforms that Kotlin supports (Kotlin/JVM for server and desktop, Kotlin/JS and Kotlin/Native), please be sure that they are as important for us as ever. Our vision here is to make Kotlin a uniform tool for end-to-end development of various applications bridging multiple platforms with the same language. This includes full-stack web applications, Android and iOS clients, embedded/IoT and much more.

Programming languages are just like human ones: the more people speak a language, the better. First-class support on Android will likely bring more users to Kotlin, and we expect the community to grow significantly. This means more libraries and tools developed in/for Kotlin, more experience shared, more Kotlin job offerings, more learning materials published, and so on. We are excited to see the Kotlin ecosystem flourish!

We will be partnering with Google to create a non-profit foundation for Kotlin. Language development will continue to be sponsored by JetBrains, and the Kotlin team (over 40 people and second largest team at the company) will operate as usual. Andrey Breslav remains the Lead Language Designer, and Kotlin will be developed under the same principles as before. We’ll keep our design processes open because your feedback is critical for us in moving Kotlin in the right direction.

If you’re at Google I/O, make sure you stop by one of the Kotlin talks on the schedule. And of course, don’t forget to register for KotlinConf in San Francisco in November. It will be an amazing event!"
