Moving from Java to Kotlin – is it worth it? – a presentation by Urs Peter

Kotlin is the rising star on the JVM. Is it as bright as proclaimed? This talk will explore the journey you embark on when moving from Java to Kotlin. With many code samples, statistics, anecdotes, and a great deal of real-world experience, light will be shed on questions like “What were the benefits and drawbacks?’“, “How did we approach it?” …and most of all: “Was it worth it and why?”At the end of this talk, you will know in detail the differences between Java and Kotlin. You have learned what to gain and expect when embracing Kotlin and which best practices you can apply. With all the acquired information, you have all you need to evaluate whether Kotlin is worth a try.

Type-safe builders allow creating Kotlin-based domain-specific languages (DSLs) suitable for building complex hierarchical data structures. We will look at how these builders work and see five additional patterns to create an expressive DSL.
