This is the first of a weekly series where I will be sharing tech skills that are trending in the Emsi job posting data. Emsi is a labor market analytics firm that continuously searches millions of job postings across the web. Our first trending skill is the Kotlin programming language.
I’m going to keep these simple. Unless otherwise noted (probably not), I am not an expert in the skills I post here. All I’ve done is identified these skills as trending in our job posting data, and I wanted to share. Enjoy.
Kotlin 12-month growth rate (in unique postings): 481%
What is Kotlin? Kotlin is an open-source, statically-typed programming language that runs on the Java virtual machine. It appears to be increasing in demand due to its use in Android app development.
