谷歌与JetBrains合作组建了Kotlin Foundation(谷歌云门户)

Slowly but surely, Google has been working to give developers an alternative to developing Android apps in Java. Today, Google has announced that it is doubling down on one alternative, JetBrains’ Kotlin, with the announcement of the Kotlin Foundation.

Kotlin, Google’s answer to some of its many Java-related woes on Android, was created by popular IDE developer JetBrains in 2011. In more recent years, support for the relatively new language has been ramping up in Android.

This was especially true at Google I/O earlier this year, where Kotlin gained more support via Android Jetpack. Now Google is looking to show that Kotlin is good for more than just Android.

Google has made its presence known at KotlinConf 2018, which kicked off today in Amsterdam. Part of today’s announcements is the creation of a dedicated Kotlin portal on the Google Cloud Platform, including an official Quickstart guide, API examples, and community-created tutorials.

Earlier today at KotlinConf 2018, JetBrains and Google co-announced the creation of the Kotlin Foundation. The foundation’s primary goal is to proliferate both the Kotlin language, and ensure it can be relied upon for years to come.

The mission of the Kotlin Foundation is to protect, promote and advance the development of the Kotlin programming language. The Foundation secures Kotlin’s development and distribution as Free Software, meaning that it is able to be freely copied, modified and redistributed, including modifications to the official versions.

Possibly the most important of the Kotlin Foundation’s responsibilities is the selection of a Lead Language Designer. This designer is in charge of making the final decisions on changes to the way the language is written. This is a critical position, as even minuscule changes to the language design can have unintended consequences for previously written code.

This is, of course, not the first time that the two companies have partnered, as Android Studio is based on JetBrains’ IntelliJ IDEA editor. It’s clear, from its role in the creation of the Kotlin Foundation, that Google is not backing away from what is clearly a fruitful relationship that is benefiting developers globally.

谷歌一直在努力为开发人员提供用Java开发Android应用程序的替代方案。今天,谷歌已经宣布,随着科特林基金会的宣布,它正在加倍推出JetBrains的Kotlin。

Kotlin是谷歌在Android上与Java相关的许多问题的答案,它是由流行的IDE开发商JetBrains在2011年创建的。近年来,Android中对这种相对较新的语言的支持一直在增加。

今年早些时候在Google I / O上尤其如此,Kotlin通过Android Jetpack获得了更多支持。现在谷歌正在寻求表明Kotlin不仅仅是Android的好处。

谷歌已经在今天在阿姆斯特丹举行的KotlinConf 2018年开幕。今天公告的部分内容是在Google云平台上创建专门的Kotlin门户,包括官方快速入门指南,API示例和社区创建的教程。

今天早些时候在KotlinConf 2018年,JetBrains和Google 共同宣布了Kotlin基金会的成立。该基金会的主要目标是扩大Kotlin语言,并确保在未来几年内可以依赖它。

Kotlin基金会的使命是保护,促进和推动Kotlin编程语言的发展。该基金会确保Kotlin作为自由软件的开发和发行,这意味着它可以被自由复制,修改和重新分发,包括对官方版本的修改。

可能Kotlin基金会最重要的职责是选择一位主要语言设计师。这位设计师负责对语言编写方式的变化做出最终决定。这是一个关键的位置,因为即使对语言设计进行微小的更改也会对以前编写的代码产生意想不到的后果。

当然,这并不是两家公司第一次合作,因为Android Studio基于JetBrains的IntelliJ IDEA编辑器。从其在Kotlin基金会创建中的角色来看,显而易见的是,Google并没有放弃显然是一种有益于全球开发商的富有成效的关系。
