Bringing Kotlin's power to Java libraries

ABSTRACT

Kotlin (http://jetbrains.com/kotlin) is a modern statically typed language targeting JVM and providing transparent interoperability with Java. You can call Java APIs from Kotlin programs and vice versa. On top of that, Kotlin enhances existing Java libraries by providing useful extension methods leveraging the modern language features such as closures, static null-safety, builders and overloaded operators. In this session we cover the principles that enable such enhancements.
