Main Talk: Practical Kotlin with a Disco ball (30 min)

Speaker: Nick DiPatri Abstract:

Kotlin is the next shiny object and many of its facets will convince you to switch from Java. The last year has produced a flood of Kotlin libraries, plugins, idioms, conversion-from-Java and language style guides. In this talk, I will provide some focus on all this advice as I discuss how I converted my own ‘RoboButton’ IoT side-project to Kotlin. This talk features a live disco ball, so please dress accordingly.
