Data Types in Kotlin

  • Data type means a type of data that can be used and manipulate in the programming language.

  • Kotlin is a statically typed language like Java. That means the type of variable is known during the compile time.

  • Just remember that in kotlin everything is an object in the sense that we can call member functions and properties on any variable.

For example, consider the following:

a + b —
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • Here highScore is a variable on which we are calling toInt() conversion function. And a and b are also variables on which internally calls. So that is how they called everything is an object.

There are basically three types of data type in kotlin:

  1. Number
  2. Character
  3. Boolean
  • Data types are one of the foundational topics of any programming language. That’s why I’ll post three posts on each data types. So that they all cannot be mixed up with each other and will become easy to understand for you guys. Please check out for them as well. These posts also come up with the same wallpaper, so that it becomes easy for you to find them.

Till then Keep Coding, Keep Loving.
