The GDG Team ## Description

The Kotlin workshop will be divided into two major sections, one is at a higher level understanding of the syntax, the capabilities, and the standard libraries.

The second part will cover using Kotlin in projects, testing, Kotlin Android extension, and Kotlin and Java interoperability.

Please take a look at the prerequisite criteria and the required environments. We want to make sure that everybody who is able to join this event is well aligned to make the most of it.

Please note that we will not be spending any time on helping people setting up the environment. Please ensure to come with the environment prepared.
