Kotlin is great, learning Android not so much.
It's not something you can do on top of other things, it's a full time activity. The SDK is huge, always moving, you never know what are the current best practices, which would be soon obsolete anyway. There are lots of landmines ready to explode in Android development, so if you learnt JavaScript you will probably feel at home :)

haha thanks for the kind reply!
I'll definitely look at your auto-pomoted articles if I take the Kotlin route.
