What we're about

Karibu Kotlin Kenya meetup group! We are a collective bunch of lovely people from all different backgrounds interested in this fun(ctional) language that is taking the programming world by storm (well, at least in the JVM arena!) In this group we will meet periodically to make this language and its ecosystem known. If you like to program and look for a more modern alternative to develop applications for the JVM, join!

Come join us and learn more about this neat language, the ecosystem surrounding it and what Kotlin can do for you! We hope to have interesting presenters/talks and presentations on a regular basis...please do shout up if you would like to see something related to Kotlin.

We chat here also: https://t.me/kotlinKenya
