Keep Kotlin Fun

with Sebastian Aigner

From emoji generators to multiplayer games, tiny printer drivers, IoT-integrations, or Slack message parsers: prototypes for strange ideas are a great driver for learning opportunities – even just to disprove that something is impossible. I want to share with you the fun and excitement that comes from building something truly exciting, the small ideas that keep us up at night until the first tiny proof of concept has been hacked together. We’ll explore how Kotlin can empower us in making those things, through a blend of language features, libraries, and use cases that you might not come across every day. Even if you're not working on your own silly ideas, you will see some novel approaches to solving problems with Kotlin, presented in such a unique context that they’ll be hard to forget.
