Kotlin all the... tests!

Day 1 /  / Track 2  /  EN / Для практикующих инженеров /

Kotlin was the rising star of programming languages in 2016. Not only did it get to version 1.0 but also got rapidly adopted in the Android community. But many companies are struggling to add Kotlin to an existing Java project. It's not easy to add a new language to an existing team. It's much easier to introduce Kotlin to your project using the backdoor: your unit tests. So let's look at Kotlin more from a testing perspective. How does writing tests in Kotlin look like, what possibilities of the language will help us?

Danny is a Google Developer Expert for Android and a mobile developer by heart. He lives in and works in Berlin, the city he loves as much as Android. Danny signed the Software Craftsmanship manifesto as a strong believer in the value of life long learning. He dreams in clean code and could speak about unit testing all night. That’s also his favorite topic when speaking or writing about Android.

Danny was in charge for Android for eBay’s classifieds business in Germany before moving to Groupon to build a team there bringing mobile to life of merchants. Even before Android came along he programmed for mobile phones and every device that could run some kind of Java. Now he is using his learnings to bring TV entertainment to the next level on Android at Viacom International.
