Kotlin Heroes 6

After joining Kotlin Heroes 4 and Kotlin Heroes 5: ICPC Round in 2020, I decided to register again for this year's Kotlin Heroes 6 on March 9. Kotlin Heroes is a programming competition from JetBrains (creator of Kotlin) and CodeForces. The challenge is to use Kotlin in solving as many problems in two and a half hours.

My goal, like in the previous Kotlin Heroes, is the solve at least 2 problems. I only managed to successfully solve one of the 10 problems this time. In the second problem, my solution was failing in some test cases and my solution to the third problem was almost done but time ran out for me.

Co-Authored Book: How to Build Android Apps with Kotlin

The book I have co-authored, How to Build Android Apps with Kotlin, has finally beeen published last month. I have been writing blogs and tech articles for a while now but this is the first time for me to write a book. We have worked on this for months and it's feels great that it's now out for everyone to read and learn from.

With the book, you can build your knowledge, skills, and confidence by working on realistic examples, practical exercises, and challenging activities. If you want to learn Android app development with Kotlin, you can check out our book which is available on Packt and on Amazon.

I wrote a little more about my experience writing for the book here.
