Welcome, and awesome to have you here.

I'm thinking about doing more Android development; do you think it's worth learning Java or should I just jump straight into Kotlin?

Hey, Andy!

If you are already familiar with any other object-oriented programming language, you should be good to go with Kotlin. Notably, for Android, since it is now an official language for Android development.

If you obtain enough proficiency in Kotlin, you’ll be able to maintain older Java code, as well.
