About this event

Announcing the first Kotlin Weekend of Coding!

Looking forward to discover a language that will support you in writing readable and understandable code in few lines?

Without any help of any extra libraries such as Lombok, Guava and even more, Kotlin will challenge you to write code that even the business analyst should be able to understand. With Kotlin you can finally focus on the business features you want to implement instead working on the language itself.

Join us at Outbox on 4th August 2018 for the first Kotlin Weekend of Coding. In this workshop, you will build a simple webservice in Kotlin and hopefully see how easy it can be to write new business functionality.

If you are an Android or Website developer and want to develop apps with Kotlin this workshop will be perfect for you,this workshop is a two day event and its a payed for event and tickets are at UGX 20,000 which facilitates your meals and a Kotlin Tshirt,We have yet another cool meetup planned. This time you actually get to code yourself. In Kotlin!

Using Android Studio we will build a full Android Application using Kotlin.
