Kotlin Under Covers

Kotlin offers many powerful language features that make it a welcome addition to the Android developer’s toolkit. But some of these features may do significant work behind the scenes, including allocating object and reflection. This dynamic is not obvious from the Kotlin code, so how do we know when this is happening? This talk will go over some of these areas that you should be aware of, as well as the tools that help us discover this kind of information about our code.

Android Jetpack ❤️ Kotlin

On the road to more wholesome APIs Two years ago, Android announced first-class support for the Kotlin programming language. Both the language and the platform evolved a lot during this time, with more focus from the engineering teams at Google on helping developers use the full power of Kotlin. In fact, we’ve seen tremendous adoption of the language among top Android app developers.
That’s why, just 2 years later, we announced that, going forward, Android will become Kotlin-first.
In this talk I want to talk about the current state of Kotlin on Android, and give you a small glimpse into the future of what modern app development with Kotlin and Android Jetpack looks like.
