GDG Cloud London
Thu, May 23, 2019, 6:00 PM (BST)

About this event

In this codelab, you will convert an address book application written in the Java language to Kotlin. In doing so, you will see how Kotlin can:

Help reduce boilerplate code.
Provide concise, readable code that is easy to maintain.
Avoid common Android development pitfalls.
Enforce best practices as you write the code, preventing runtime errors.
