Are there few reasons which cannot absolutely be done in Java. He gave examples of pojo around 1:57 but can use lombok

Why Kotlin: "because in Java you have to write all those properties and … ehm … setters and getters", "most of my bugs were in POJOs". Oh gosh 🙁

Sir, are you pushing for anko DSL? Anko was really a beautiful concept. But there are increasing concerns about it's halted development. Even so with ROOM competing with anko SQLITE. Let's find a way to get the best of all the worlds. I want to be able use ViewModel with anko layouts. But I don't see anyone pushing for it.

Yes, so far I've made 5 apps with just kotlin. All work smoothly without hiccups. Adding anko even makes layouts faster.

I think it's great that you can use both interchangeably. I'm an old Java head, and need to learn Kotlin…and am delighted that I can do so little by little without disrupting my current skillset.
