AND Elevenses: Challenger Language Series - Kotlin

9 July 2020 11:00 - 11:45

For over 20 years, JavaScript, Java and C# have topped the lists of most popular programming languages but we love learning about what else is out there.

What alternatives are available to us, and what kind of ecosystems could we use them in? Should we be considering using them… or not?

In this first part of a five part series, we will be looking at Kotlin. 

Advertised as a replacement for Java, is it truly what it is hyped up to be? Or is it another language that is being raved about currently that will die in a few years time? Is it just for mobile development or can it be used in other ways?

This session will cover: 

  • A brief history of Kotlin
  • Kotlin’s use cases
  • Features of the language
  • A live demo 
  • Is it worth looking into?

About AND Elevenses

In our collective new normal of working from home, we’ve noticed ourselves just how easy it is to lose track of time and find yourself working without sufficient breaks. Without these, we all know how fast productivity, focus and wellbeing can dwindle.

So, to help break up your day, we’ve launched AND Elevenses: snappy, 45-minute live webinar sessions where you can learn new skills, network with others and take some time out from your working day. 

If you've missed an event, don't worry. You can watch recordings here from each Elevenses session we run.
