Cool. The nice thing about Kotlin is that it's a hybrid functional + object-oriented language. I like this because I can always switch to OO when I get stuck in FP. I come from OO originally, so my skill in FP sometimes hits its limit. The most important aspect of Kotlin's hybridity is that functions are first-class citizens. Also, check out the very active Kotlin FP channel #arrow on kotlinlang.slack.com.
