It is true that the underlying code of the platform and most underlying libraries are written in C/C+, but unless you are on the Android team in Google you are better off using some rapid development tool like Java. There are no other alternatives, Kotlin with all due respect doesn't cut it.

If the boss comes to someone to write a validated form for some commerce website, people don't really start developing a new browser in C to do the job, they write some Javascript really.

Edit: Some of the best programmers I have seen were also very opinionated about languages and tools, but in they end they also had to do their actual jobs you know
