My First Impressions of Udacity's Kotlin for Android Development

For 2019, one of my goals was to complete the Google/Udacity Kotlin for Android Development course. Since starting on the first, I’ve completed the first three `lessons` of ten in the course (sadly, it appears that they are still working on content for lessons five to ten, and have not published the work for them), so I thought I’d give my initial feedback and also thoughts on the course’s primary focus: developing Android applications using Kotlin.  Digging into the unfinished courses does provide the video files, so it’s possible to learn some of Lesson’s 5-10 on my own without the quizzes or sample code.

Starting 2019 with a Retrospective

This past year has been full of lessons, just as every year before; an expected constant which I think is important to reflect upon just around the end to identify growth, ambitions and also sway between where life is taking you, and which steps you want to take. Instead of mentioning the negative lessons, inner turmoil and emotional demons, I wanted to touch upon some career and personal growth discoveries that I learned this past year - some even being common sense!
