6:15-7:45: Kotlin for Java Programmers
There's so much you know as a Java programmer and yet there is so much more that Kotlin offers. It's a language that is built on strong foundations and, at the same time, brings along phenomenal concepts to favor low ceremony, fluency, sensible warnings, safe types, pragmatic mixture of object-oriented and functional programming, and so much more.
In this presentation, you'll start with what you already are familiar with, and dive into Kotlin, to learn about its strengths and capabilities.
