Key differences between Kotlin and VB.NET

SyntaxKotlin has a modern and concise syntax that is similar to Java but with added features like null safety and extension functions.VB.NET has a more verbose syntax compared to Kotlin and is similar to the older Visual Basic language.
ParadigmKotlin is a statically-typed programming language that supports both object-oriented and functional programming paradigms.VB.NET is primarily an object-oriented programming language.
TypingKotlin has strong static typing with type inference, which reduces the need for explicit type declarations.VB.NET also has strong static typing but requires explicit type declarations.
PerformanceKotlin is designed to have similar performance to Java as it can be compiled to JVM bytecode.VB.NET is compiled to Common Intermediate Language (CIL) and runs on the .NET framework, which can have comparable performance to other .NET languages.
Libraries and frameworksKotlin has good interoperability with Java libraries and frameworks, allowing developers to leverage the existing Java ecosystem.VB.NET has access to the extensive .NET framework libraries and can also use third-party libraries developed for .NET.
Community and supportKotlin has a growing community and is backed by JetBrains, which provides support and regular updates.VB.NET has an established community and is supported by Microsoft, but it may not have as much active development and new features compared to other .NET languages.
Learning curveKotlin has a relatively low learning curve, especially for developers familiar with Java, as it builds upon existing Java knowledge.VB.NET has a moderate learning curve, especially for developers familiar with other .NET languages or Visual Basic.
