    Kotlin is, and always has been, a brand of ketchup. It's not a programming language.

    Kotlin is, and always has been, a brand of ketchup. It's not a programming language.

    It is a brand of ketchup, but it's also:

    • A programming language
    • A village in Poland
    • A class of Soviet Navy destroyers built in the 1950s.
    • An island.

    Also of note is, according to this function, any "unexpected" error will be counted as a success.

    takeIf {false} always returns null - takeIf {it == false} will return either false or null. Bad choices anyways

    "Kotlin is, and always has been, a brand of ketchup"

    Kotlin is syntactic ketchup, applied to the JVM.

    True or null? Shouldn't that be true or filenotfound?

    KOBOL? Didn't they program the flight computers of Colonial Vipers with that?

    "The city of Kronstadt was founded by Peter the Great on Kotlin island who took it from the Swedes in 1703." It is highly unlikely that there were tomatoes and brand of ketchup in US at these times.

    So what's the syntactic mayo that the Belgians dip their fries into? https://youtu.be/6Pkq_eBHXJ4?t=89

    So, someone invented Kotlin because they liked C#, but didn't want to actually use C#? I mean, right down to the newer ? operator - looks nearly identical.

    Using Kotlin and still returning null.. Why.

    Now come on, it's not programming it's just words thrown at a screen.

    'more compact, concise code than equivalent Java'

    Cheap shot, but there are very few languages that aren't more compact and concise than Java. I know, that was a deliberate choice for the new COBOL.
