Kotlin - do more with less code
Google recently announced Kotlin as an official programming language on Android and you might wonder, why is this such a big deal? This talk will show you why everyone is excited and how you can do a lot more with less code if you switch from Java to Kotlin.
Everything, from a simple click of a button to fetching data, is asynchronous. Many different constructs have emerged to simplify the process of constructing and executing asynchronous code, often limited by the platform and framework. Kotlin 1.1 introduces an old, but extremely powerful concept known as coroutines. Coroutines are a wild new concept for Android developers. This talk will show my conclusions on the matter, and possibly deliver more questions than answers.
