Programming with Time in Kotlin
Peter Farlow

Time goes by so slowly, and yet it's easy to quickly introduce errors in our code. Explore the origins of time and its practical implications for programmers.

MVVM with Kotlin

We'll cover MVVM and it's associates: data-binding and LiveData. We'll answer the following questions for each:
- How it works?
- Why to use it?
- How to use it?

What is this Meetup about?

Kotlin Office Hours is a monthly meetup where software developers of all backgrounds who want to learn Kotlin or improve their Kotlin skills can come, share their experiences and get help with their Kotlin projects.

Kotlin is an open-source programming language developed by JetBrains which has seen an upswell of interest since it's 1.0 release in 2016. It now supports not only JVM but JavaScript and LLVM architectures as well. We will have experts speaking about Kotlin and its use in these various architectures, showing their knowledge and the projects that they are working on.

Who is it for?

This meetup is for both beginners and more advanced Kotlin developers who are interested in learning more about Kotlin and in how other developers are using it in their work and projects. Any developer with an interest in Kotlin is encouraged to join this meetup.
