Kotlin is a brand new statically typed language from JetBrains with stable release only since 2016. At 2017, at Google I/O it got proclaimed as "Official Android Language". Especially now with the androidthings release at IO, it will gain even more attention.

We will introduce pure language syntax and features in IntelliJ IDEA, starting from the "Hello DefStaff" and moving up all the way to some neat features like extension functions, extension properties, tail recursion, smart casting, and more...

If time allows we will play with android too and show some cool stuff, like "kotlin-android-extensions" to simplify the code interaction to our XML model, and so on.

So this talk/hands-on will give you a primer so you can start developing with Kotlin, right after. Consider having your laptop with you if there is WIFI connection available, even if you don't have Kotlin installed.

Take this opportunity to join thousands of developers as now is the best time to kick off with Kotlin!

Nice! Been meaning to look into Kotlin for a while now.

Are you thinking of this as a hands-on "Hack Session", or is this more like a presentation / mob programming type of thing?

I was thinking to have slides for the first 10 minutes and then continue with raw code.
As for the code part, I will mostly have pre-made code snippets ready to demonstrate and compile, so consider this part as "compilable slides".

People will be able to follow, even if they don't have Kotlin installed.
Just a laptop and a WIFI connection is enough to type what they see and compile online :)
