About this event

• What we'll do
Java has been the language for Android ever since it started. Not anymore. Kotlin is now an official language on Android.

Kotlin is a statically typed programming language that runs on the JVM and is completely interoperable with Java. Kotlin is an officially supported language for developing Android apps, along with Java.

In this event, we will learn the basics of Kotlin, create an Android app using it, and during the session we'll see why you should make the switch from Java to Kotlin
