Notes and comments
This is an introduction workshop for building backend and frontend solutions with Kotlin. It targets any developers regardless of their background. We will provide the required setup for their laptops for Windows, Linux and macOS on a number of USB sticks so we can get started faster without having to wait for everyone to download all required software, and there we'll post a link so people can prepare ahead of time if they want to.
This workshop is done together with Sebastiano Poggi.

He currently works as a consultant in his own company (Hellman Software), is a member of the Google Developer Expert program, and can often be found at various developer conferences speaking about best practices for various software challenges.
Emerging from the foggy plains of northern Italy after working at a smartwatch startup, Sebastiano moved with his curls to London to do great things at AKQA and then Novoda. Regularly speaking at conferences and brain-dumping on the 'net got him into the Google Developers Experts programme in 2014. Nowadays he's working on some rather cool Kotlin stuff for JetBrains.
