"I'm quite good in Java, why should I be a Kotlin newbie?"

When we become proficient in the language we have been writing in for years, getting really comfortable with its technological stack, we are afraid to lose all that we have gained and start all over again with some other programming language. For me, this was the case after I gained a lot of experience with C#.

A few years ago I decided to leave my comfort zone and started writing in Scala. Later I added more languages to my toolbox like JavaScript and Python.

I’ve discovered that learning and becoming proficient in more languages has many advantages and benefits and the the continuous learning process can be quite easy.
