About the program

Kotlin is a modern and statically typed programming language targeting the JVM, Android, JavaScript & Native that will boost your productivity and increase your developer happiness. In this masterclass, we explore Kotlin language and help developers familiar with Java (or similar language) to understand why they should use Kotlin with a thorough understanding of the building blocks.

We will start with typical Java programming idioms and write Kotlin equivalent of the program. We will discuss what Kotlin offers to make the developers more productive and quicker feedback. You will also work on several coding exercises to help explore the language better.

At the end of the workshop, the participants would have gained a solid understanding of basic building blocks of Kotlin and what makes it a better Java.
