"Kotlin DSL & Gradle 5.0" - Justin Slade (Mobile Application Architect, VHI)

"Demystifying Coroutines" - Eamonn Boyle (Software Trainer, Instil Software)

Coroutines are the official solution for tackling asynchronous programming and parallelism in Kotlin. They reached maturity in the latest release but have been widespread for some time, especially within Android projects. Coroutines are an elegant solution which can be applied in isolation or used as a foundation for other frameworks. This talk will provide a simple and definitive picture of how coroutines work, both in terms of the underlying theory and practical examples.
