Kotlin for Java Developers by Ruslan Ibragimov (RU)
Kotlin is a statically typed language with strong support for both classic OO and object-functional approaches. Kotlin already became main language for many backend and android developers. In this talk we re going to learn Kotlin from the ground up. Topics covered: syntax, interoperability with Java.
Introduction to Bootique and Kotlin Gradle by Ruslan Ibragimov (RU)
Today, many Java developers are tired of the complexity and the bulkiness of containers and existing frameworks.
Bootique is a simple and universal solution to these problems. At the core of Bootique are three pillars that provide developers with everything they need for building an application:
- A POSIXly launcher
- A clean integration/modularity mechanism
- A smart and simple configuration engine.
Using these features, you can build an app of any complexity and size. At the meetup I will demonstrate an example of how to
write an application with Bootique, and how easy it is to write and integrate your own module into an existing Bootique application.
As a cherry on top, we will look into Kotlin Gradle and what benefits you get writing buildscripts and apps in pure Kotlin.
For a long time android developers were struggling with old Java versions and enviously looked at backend developers using their fancy streams and lambdas. Thanks to Kotlin those times are over. Now any Android developer can use latest and greatest language features, gain from mixing different paradigms and much more. In this talk I will highlight how Kotlin may be beneficial to any Android developer.
