A peek at Kotlin

AW Seminar


LEVEL: Intermediate

Kotlin, a new statically typed language from JetBrains, just reached a new milestone (M10). The language itself is good news for everyone who wants to write code where interoperability with Java is a requirement. Right now, Kotlin can be compiled both into JVM bytecode and Javascript. In this talk, we'll take a look at the syntax and various idioms in Kotlin. We'll also talk about collections such as lists and maps, and how to apply operations to them in a functional way.

Some of the things this talk will cover:

Object orientation: Classes and properties

Extension methods, lambdas and higher order programming

Collections and functional programming

Intended audience

This talk is for developers who are interested in Kotlin. No prior experience in Kotlin is needed. However, it will be assumed that you are familiar with object orientation and to some degree functional programming in terms of closures/lambdas and higher-order programming.
