This is a 2 part event: a talk for folks who have been using Kotlin for a while and a bevy of Koans (or is it a 'murder'!?) for those new to Kotlin. As ever food and drinks will be supplied.

Coroutines are the official solution for tackling asynchronous programming and parallelism in Kotlin. They reached maturity in the latest release but have been widespread for some time, especially within Android projects. Coroutines are an elegant solution which can be applied in isolation or used as a foundation for other frameworks.

This talk will provide a simple and definitive picture of how coroutines work, both in terms of the underlying theory and practical examples.

Koans for the masses, with help from experienced Kotliners. Best you bring your own laptop, but we can supply some laptops if you are stuck.
