Abstract

Kotlin does a lot for us in the way of reducing boilerplate. But what is it really doing? We will be inspecting some decompiled Kotlin to discover how it does its job. By looking underneath at how it handles data classes, lambdas, and delegation, we can better understand how the language executes what we write. If you’re curious about the language, or already using it in production, you should walk away from this investigation with a deeper understanding of Kotlin, and some tools for continued exploration.

Outline

  • Introduction to Kotlin programming language
  • Learning language features through decompilation
  • Data Classes
  • Null Safety
  • Delegation
  • Extension Functions
  • Lambdas
  • Tools for further exploration
