  • Remote: Kotlin Error Handling & Concurrency with Actors 🌎

    Hello GDG Capital Region enthusiasts, GDG Capital Region is teaming up with the GDE Boston Android community, as well as GDG Toronto Android, GDG Bronx, GDG Phoenix Android, GDG Android Columbus, and GDG MAD for a super-mega-ultra virtual meetup! Each of us will be posting the same event, with equal amounts of enthusiasm about uniting for the good of all our communities. We cannot wait to see you and, and listen to our wonderful speakers! Schedule: 6:00PM - 6:30PM: Introductions 6:30PM - 7:00PM: Error handling in Kotlin and the Result Monad by Adam Bennett 7:00PM - 7:30PM: No Drama Concurrency with Kotlin Actors by Sam Edwards 7:30PM - 8:00PM: Closing Talk #1: Error handling in Kotlin and the Result Monad by Adam Bennett Kotlin doesn’t force you to handle functions that might throw exceptions, so how can we best ensure that our code is safe to execute whilst handling errors in a reasonable way? In this talk, we’ll look at some strategies that the team at Cuvva evaluated and discuss in-depth the solution they chose: the Result Monad. We’ll talk about how it works and build one from first principles, and discuss how utilizing this strategy can help you. Checkout Adam's blog: https://adambennett.dev/ Talk #2: No Drama Concurrency with Kotlin Actors by Sam Edwards Everything on Android is essentially asynchronous, so achieving thread safety is of absolute importance for the integrity of our data. Historically we've used synchronized blocks and mutexes to achieve concurrency, but the code is complex and sometimes feels unapproachable. Actors are part of the Kotlin Coroutines library and are the most straight forward, readable way to deal with concurrency, without going crazy. This talk will help you understand what Actors and how to use them through real world examples. Checkout Sam's blog: https://handstandsam.com/ The event will be hosted on Remo (remo.co), for which a url will be shared within 48 hours of this event. See you online!
