Kotlin has established itself in the Android development community since v1.0 last year, and with official support announced at I/O this year, it’s an exciting time to get started with this language in your work.
This talk will take you through Deliveroo’s journey from a full Java codebase to using Kotlin across the project. Learn how to get your colleagues involved and convert them to Kotlin supporters. You will also learn how they got started, the problems they ran into and how Kotlin can improve your codebase, your app and your sanity.
