The next NYC Kotlin Meetup will be happening on Wednesday February 19th, 2020 at Venmo - 117 Barrow Street, 5th floor.


Jetpack Compose -- Pedro Veloso

This talk will offer a hands-on approach on building a fully functional material looking application with Jetpack Compose, by using its existing components.

Talk 2 -- Contributing Kotlin Samples to JetBrains -- Adam McNeilly and Brian Plummer

One of the greatest feelings as a developer, or as a person in general, is being able to give back to a community that's helped you. As Android developers, we have a great opportunity to do just that with the Kotlin language. In this talk, we'll go over how to find easy ways to help, and walk you through the process to make your first contribution.

Talk 3 -- KaMP -- Kevin Galligan

Touchlab has released a toolkit for getting started with Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile technology. It’s a self-contained GitHub project that you can use as a starting point or for evaluating the technology.

Location: Thank you to Venmo for hosting and providing food and drinks. When you arrive someone will be at the entrance checking ids and directing you where to go.
