The rise of Kotlin and other mobile dev trends: Realm Report, inaugural edition

With our growing community of over 100,000 active Realm developers, more than 3.5 billion installs on devices worldwide, and one of the mobile industry’s most popular content sources in Realm Academy, we have a unique point of view on the mobile development landscape. Today we’re publishing the first edition of the new Realm Report, a quarterly publication that draws upon that perspective to share data and insights covering the most interesting developments in the world of mobile dev. Our intention is to report on what’s happening with mobile development right now, and provide our predictions of where things are going in the future.

Topics for Realm Report will vary, but for the first edition, we’re diving deep into the geography of mobile, and showing that the rise of Kotlin is happening faster than you’d think. In the report you will learn about:

  • The current state of mobile development landscape
  • Kotlin’s current boom and seemingly inexorable path toward overtaking Java
  • iOS and Android development trends
  • And — take a guess — which country has the world’s most advanced mobile developers?

Is there something you’ve always wondered about the world of mobile dev? Let us know on social, and we’ll see about including those insights in our future editions.


Realm Team

At Realm, our mission is to help developers build better apps faster. We provide a unique set of tools and platform technologies designed to make it easy for developers to build apps with sophisticated, powerful features — things like realtime collaboration, augmented reality, live data synchronization, offline experiences, messaging, and more.

Everything we build is developed with an eye toward enabling developers for what we believe the mobile internet evolves into — an open network of billions of users and trillions of devices, and realtime interactivity across them all.
