Talk: Kotlin for C# Developers

Dive into the latest craze in languages and platforms - Kotlin. This time we will be looking at it from the perspective of a .NET C# developer, draw comparisons between the languages, and bridge the gap between these 2 amazing languages.

We'll look at:

  • Kotlin as a language
  • Platforms Kotlin is great for
  • Object Oriented Implementations in Kotlin
  • Extended Features
  • Features Kotlin has that C# doesn't
  • A demo Android application in Kotlin vs a Xamarin.Android app in C#
In the end you will leave with a foundational knowledge of Kotlin and its capabilities to build awesome apps with less code. You should feel comfortable comparing C# applications to Kotlin applications and know where to find resources to learn even more!
