hi there i want to start learning android programming .( i am game developer that using unity and c#)
should i learn java ? will Java be deleted from Android in the future ?
Learning Kotlin is a bit hard for me (now) .because it does not have any book in my language while java has a lot of book (the most important of these is Daitel's book)
What do you suggest ?

First of all, bear in mind that you are learning Android Development and not just Java or Kotlin.

I think start with Java is a great idea because you’ll find numerous most Java-related learning resources while Kotlin ones aim at Java developers with some experience. That's why it's hard for you.

Later you can switch to Kotlin once you’re feeling like this. Honestly, if you know Java already, it will take one or two days to understand the syntax of Kotlin
