Join Big Nerd Ranch for a weekend of intensive learning where Josh Skeen, author, developer and instructor, will introduce Kotlin, a new language for Android development. We will cover Kotlin development techniques, language principles, and how to migrate your existing Java projects to Kotlin. We’ll show you why Google has pinned Kotlin as the future of Android development.
Understand Java and Kotlin interoperability and how you can introduce Kotlin to legacy Android applications to begin upgrading your codebase.
Reduce repetitive code by leveraging inheritance and Kotlin extensions that allow you to fundamentally change the way you design Android apps.
Understand how to work practically with Kotlin's functional programming features to streamline traditionally imperative logic flows.
