The Kotlin programming language is developed by JetBrains and now is an officially-supported language for Android Development. This full-day workshop aims to share with you the power and the beauty of the language. We imply that you consider using Kotlin in your every-day work and want to feel more confident with the language first. We’ll have a basic overview of the language, as well as a discussion of some corner cases, especially concerning Java interoperability. The workshop is based on your Java experience; it shows the similarities between two languages and focuses on what’s going to be different.

We’ll cover:

* Basic syntax
* Nullability
* Object-oriented programming with Kotlin
* Functional programming with Kotlin
* Java interoperability
* Building DSLs
