Gradle Kotlin DSL is this new thing that aims to fix some annoyances you might have with your build scripts. And if you're thinking "Wait, what's Kotlin got to do with my build scripts? Ain't that just a JSON-ish Gradle specific text file?", then don't worry. Marcin will explain that in fact no, the build script is just code (spoiler: not Java™️ Programming Language code, but close) and how Gradle Kotlin DSL makes it better.
He'll also take a pretty detailed look at how Gradle Kotlin DSL works for Android projects. Can you use it for your app's build script right now? Does it support the extra features (and complexity) that the Android Gradle plugin adds into the mix?
If you're more (or also) interested in plugin development, writing them in Kotlin is not so new, but he'll quickly show how to do it anyway because it's great and you should try it!
