Kotlin Puzzlers
May 26th
19:00 - 21:00
BOF Session

Kotlin – pleasant alternative JVM based language, trying to improve writing code experience in comparison to Java. It is not new, but after 1.0 version release in 2016 it’s popularity started to grow really quickly.  Anton will make quick introduction and immediately go to puzzlers – short programs in Kotlin, that are doing not exactly what they have to from the first perspective. Such excercise would be useful for people who use Kotlin in practice as well as just newcomers. Newcomers also could understand interesting language features better. Despite Lotlin was designed 6 years and authors tried to avoid the most popular Java puzzlers, it still has some tricks and nuances, that are not so easy to find in language documentation.
