🎊 It's time for Google IO! 🍾

RSVP here! (http://info.jetbrains.com/Kotlin-Night-2016.html)

In celebration we wanted to put on an even bigger and better event than usual, so we're teaming up with Jetbrains (https://www.jetbrains.com/), the Bay Area Kotlin User Group (http://www.meetup.com/Bay-Area-Kotlin-User-Group/), and Netflix (https://www.netflix.com/) to throw a pre-IO bash and bring you three awesome speakers.

Because this event is a joint effort, you'll need to RSVP for the event here (http://info.jetbrains.com/Kotlin-Night-2016.html),rather than on this page. Don't worry, it's still free!

The agenda:

Say goodbye to your typical meetup fare for this party! We'll have hors d'oeuvres as well as an open bar serving beer and wine (and plenty of non-alcoholic options as well 😄).

The Talks:

Talk #1: Where We Stand and What's Next

Kotlin project lead Andrey Breslav (https://twitter.com/abreslav) will give an overview of what Kotlin is today, as a tool for developers and an ecosystem, and take a peek into the near future: what we are planning for the next release.

Talk #2: Instrumentation Testing Robots

Libraries like Espresso allow UI tests to have stable interactions with your app, but without discipline these tests can become hard to manage and require frequent updating. In this talk Jake (https://twitter.com/jakewharton) will cover how the so-called robot pattern allows you to create stable, readable, and maintainable tests with the aid of Kotlin’s language features.

Talk #3:

Spek framework contributor Laura (https://twitter.com/lauraallora) and Spock maintainer Rob (https://twitter.com/rfletcherEW)will demonstrate the current state of Kotlin testing frameworks and discuss expected further advancements in testing support.


All our talks are recorded, so if you can't make it to the meetup you can still watch the talks online about two weeks afterwards. We'll email the videos to the group and post links in the event comments.
