Event Details

You Can Do Better With Kotlin

By Svetlana Isakova


This Yow! Night is devoted to the Kotlin programming language. It’s a modern language that gives more power in everyday routines and is gaining popularity amongst the Java developer community.

Kotlin code generally looks cleaner and nicer, and it’s much easier to work with when you have less verbosity or code duplication. But what’s even more important, is that Kotlin is 100% compatible with all existing Java frameworks, and has good tooling (it’s from JetBrains after all).

Our agenda for the night consists of three parts:

  • Introduction to the language

  • Introduction to Kotlin Coroutines

  • Practical sides of Java interop

At first, we'll discuss what makes Kotlin so attractive to developers and cover the most important features of the language. Then, we'll talk about coroutines, a new powerful feature, that changes your habits of writing asynchronous code. The last part is aimed mainly at people who already have some experience with Kotlin and dives into some internals of mixing Java and Kotlin code in one project.
