I recently presented this talk at Kotlin Everywhere South Africa as the keynote for the event. I really enjoyed preparing this talk as it spoke about how we use Kotlin, mistakes we’ve made along the way and our opinion on how we decide to use certain features.
Over the past year and a half, I’ve worked primarily on a Kotlin codebase. We at Over, were lucky enough to get a chance to start a project from scratch and we chose Kotlin for many reasons. Our app has been featured multiple times on the Google Play Store and we have found ourselves facing some unique challenges with the product.
In this talk, I’ll cover what my experience has been like working on a Kotlin codebase. I will cover some of the features in Kotlin we use the most, some features we eagerly over used and some of the mistakes we’ve made along the way.
