About this event

Dear community,
Yes, we're finally back with something interesting for you to experience - our first online event!

Concurrency is hard. Let's check out together how Kotlin attempts to tackle that in a practical way using their take on lightweight threads - the coroutines.

Together, we'll follow a hands-on exercise, learning about:
- suspend functions
- using coroutines for concurrency
- sharing data between coroutines using channels

Tune in from the safety of your home on July 2nd for an evening broadcast and let Viktor lead you through this Kotlin coroutines hands-on. He will showcase his approach when learning new technologies, so it's definitely not to be missed! :)

About the speaker:
Viktor Penelski
Having spent most of his career working with Java, Viktor has always enjoyed the JVM ecosystem with projects ranging from microservices and libraries to enterprise monoliths and educational content. After bumping into Kotlin in 2017, he was immediately enthralled with the practicality of the language and has been using it ever since.

Since this is an online event, it will be in a "broadcast" format - solving the challenges, explaining the thought process, and answering questions along the way. The hands-on is publicly available and can be retaken at any time.

Reserve your spot via our community here! We will provide you with a link for the livestream as soon as it's available & keep you posted about it! :)
