About this event

We are happy to announce a very special event for this month's meeting, Kotlin Everywhere! David Greenhalgh from Big Nerd Ranch will join us for an amazing talk and we will start on workshops, which you are welcome to complete on your own.

"Kotlin is one of the fastest growing and most beloved languages in the world. As of Google I/O 2019, 50% of Android apps include some Kotlin code. So if you haven’t adopted Kotlin, what are you waiting for?

In this session, we’ll catch you up on the fundamentals of Kotlin with a focus on incorporating Kotlin into your existing applications. You’ll walk away with the knowledge necessary to start adding Kotlin to your apps right away. You’ll also be well-equipped to grok the more advanced Kotlin concepts in sessions held later today.

A solid foundation in Kotlin will set you up for the future, and there’s no better place to start than Kotlin/Everywhere."

From https://developers.google.com/groups/ ::

"Google Developer Groups (GDGs) are for developers who are interested in Google's developer technology; everything from the Android, Chrome, Drive, and Google Cloud platforms, to product APIs like the Cast API, Maps API, and YouTube API. A GDG can take many forms -- from just a few people getting together to watch our latest video, to large gatherings with demos and tech talks, to events like code sprints and hackathons. However, at the core, GDGs are focused on developers and technical content, and the core audience should be developers."
