Back to School with Kotlin


It’s back to School time and so we’d like to give all the Kotlin newcomers a chance for getting a taste of Kotlin. You will hear the basics of the Kotlin programming language in a introductory talk, no Kotlin experience required, Java highly recommended, at least some other general purpose object oriented language (C#, Java Script, Scala, Ruby, ...)

Together we will go through some simple coding examples, so-called Koans, to get a feeling of the language.

Main Topic: Kotlin 101 by Rainer Kern

Preliminary Schedule:
19:00 - 19:20: Open Doors
19:20 - 19:30: Welcome, Introduction, Meetup News and Housekeeping, Sponsor Messages
19:30 - 19:45: Community Interview
19:45 - 20:30: Talk
21:00 Networking @ close by bar / restaurant
