If you like to watch video, you can look at this very good one from Google io 2018 "How to Kotlin - from the Lead Kotlin Language Designer (Google I/O '18)", link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6P20npkvcb8

Also, there is a course on Udacity, I haven't tried it myself but the description sound good: https://www.udacity.com/course/kotlin-for-android-developers--ud888

The Kotlin Koans can be a really nice way to walk through the language features in a guided way: https://try.kotlinlang.org/#/Kotlin%20Koans/Introduction/Hello,%20world!/Task.kt

Kotlin in Action is a really good book that walks through the language in great detail: https://www.amazon.com/Kotlin-Action-Dmitry-Jemerov/dp/1617293296

Udacity has a couple of courses on getting started with Kotlin:

First book:

Head First Kotlin

  • doesn’t require Java knowledge
  • easy introduction, will make you feel confident.
  • get’s you up-and-running.

Second book:

Programming Kotlin * covers more and even advanced topics, like DSLs * has a thorough chapter about Coroutines * more the kind of CS textbook, but definitely not too dry!

Or this one:

Kotlin Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide * more for the adventurous type * still solid and gets you practicing a lot * fun read, too

Also: You might want to consider Udacity’s free introductory course: Kotlin for Android Developers

And also the newer Android Dev w/ Kotlin Course: Developing Android Apps with Kotlin

Good luck on your journey!
