Kotlin is a modern programming language that was initially created as a »better Java«. However, Kotlin provides not just a better syntax but a ton of new interesting features.
In this session, you will learn about the subset of the lesser known features that might look obscure at the first sight. How does the reified keyword in Kotlin work? What is the difference between inline and crossinline, and why noinline is required? Why do we need to indicate some types as »definitely non-nullable«? What’s the deal with context receivers, and what’s the lambda with the receiver? After this session, you will have an idea about the hidden Kotlin gems features and when to apply them.
