Hey what’s up everyone! I’m new to this Reddit community, Kotlin, and programming in general. After looking through alot of the posts and seeing how everyone helps each other out I’m happy to have found this group and be apart of it. Just started with Kotlin and learning the basics from a uDemy course which has been great so far. I am definitely motivated and know I have a long way to go to reach my goals.
My goal is to create Android apps and just learn the Kotlin language to the point where I can think of an idea and just have a good idea about how I’d make it happen. My question for the community is what other knowledge should I be seeking besides just Kotlin and Android Studio knowledge. The course I’m taking right now with Udemy has me working in IntelliJ which has been actually really nice to work in as an IDE. I have read that Data Structures and Algorithms and Linear Algebra are also go knowledge to have. What do you guys think about the other areas? Should I be learning these things in conjunction with learning the basics of Kotlin.
I’ve been really motivated and have been trying to work 2-4 hours a day learning. I started an excel spreadsheet (lol I love spreadsheets) to track my time studying. Ive been equally motivated to learn Kotlin as I am just to add time to my spreadsheet. I know I have to put in the work, so far it’s been a week and I’ve got 20 hours in so far, which I don’t think is too bad working a full time job. But any other advice you guys have is appreciated. Thanks for reading.
