Java 8 was released last year adding lambdas, streams, and many other language improvements. Java 9 is already in the works, but with over half of Android devices stuck using Java 6 will we ever get to use a modern language?

Introducing Kotlin: a statically typed JVM language backed by JetBrains. With features like lambdas, class extensions, and null-safety, it aims to be concise, expressive, and highly interoperable. In this presentation we will learn how powerful Kotlin can be when added to your Android tool belt.
