Just returned from meetup where I had a talk about kotlin language - "Why Kotlin? Why now?"
The talk took place in Spaces, Reading on 21st of February 2019 and was organised by Google Developer Group Reading, namely by Chris Guest and his team.
In this talk, I highlighted reasons for learning one more language, guided through most noticeable features. In the second part, we had a live demo - kwitter REST web server.
I found people there were very friendly, it feels like they know each other for a long time. Really nice atmosphere and good vibes!
For me, it was the first time when I was talking for two hours. I think it went not terribly bad, at least I saw some people engaged in the demo, some questions were asked. If you were there - I'd love to hear the feedback!
My presentation with code snippets:
Demo project is available too - https://github.com/ruXlab/kwitter-demo
Thank you for attending the event, I hope you've learnt something useful.
And big kudos to Chris who helped me to prepare a presentation structure and gave very practical bits of advice.
