** '''Kotlin''' is a [[Statically typed|statically typed]] [[programming language]] that runs on the [[Java virtual machine]] and also can be compiled to [[JavaScript]] source code or use the [[LLVM]] compiler infrastructure. Its primary development is from a team of [[JetBrains]] programmers based in [[Saint Petersburg]], Russia.<ref name="oracle_interview"></ref> While the syntax is not compatible with Java, the JVM implementation of Kotlin's standard library is designed to interoperate with [[Java (programming language)|Java]] code and is reliant on Java code from the existing [[Java Class Library]], such as the [[Java collections framework|collections framework]]<ref name="kotlin_stdlib"></ref> . Kotlin uses aggressive [[Type inference|type inference]] to determine the type of values and expressions for which type has been left unstated. This reduces language verbosity relative to Java, which demands often entirely redundant type specifications prior to version 10. <P> As of [[Android Studio#Version history|Android Studio 3.0]] (October 2017) Kotlin is a fully supported programming language by [[Google]] on the [[Android (operating system)|Android Operating System]]<ref name="kotlin-android"></ref> , and is directly included in the Android Studio 3.0 IDE package as an alternative to the standard Java compiler. The Android Kotlin compiler lets the user choose between targeting [[Java language|Java]] 6- or Java 8-compatible bytecode.<ref name="kotlin-faq"></ref>

** '''Kotlin''' is a [[cross-platform software|cross-platform]], [[static typing|statically typed]], [[general-purpose programming language|general-purpose]] [[programming language]] with [[type inference]]. Kotlin is designed to interoperate fully with [[Java (programming language)|Java]], and the [[Java virtual machine|JVM]] version of its [[standard library]] depends on the [[Java Class Library]],<ref name="kotlin_stdlib"></ref> but type inference allows its [[syntax (programming languages)|syntax]] to be more concise. Kotlin mainly targets the JVM, but also compiles to [[JavaScript]] or [[machine code|native code]] (via [[LLVM]]). Kotlin is sponsored by [[JetBrains]] and [[Google]] through the Kotlin Foundation. <P> Kotlin is officially supported by Google for [[mobile app development|mobile development]] on [[Android (operating system)|Android]].<ref name="kotlin-android"></ref> Since the release of [[Android Studio]] 3.0 in October 2017, Kotlin is included as an alternative to the standard Java compiler. The Android Kotlin compiler lets the user choose between targeting Java 6 or Java 8 compatible bytecode.<ref name="kotlin-faq"></ref> <P> Kotlin has been Google’s preferred language for Android app development since 7 May 2019.
