droidcon london 2021 – High performance with idiomatic Kotlin

On October 29th, at droidcon London, I talked about how to achieve high performance with idiomatic Kotlin.

Multiple factors shape the experience of our users. However, nothing is more likely to drive users away than a poorly performing app and this is why we, as developers, should focus on continuously improving this attribute.

In my talk, I will emphasize the role of performance, how we can measure it, what are the main reasons that contribute to lower performance, and finally, how to use Kotlin to solve all these challenges.

Kotlin’s philosophy is to create a modern and pragmatic language for the industry, not an academic one. So I will focus on showing why developers love this language and how it could help us to build quality products by writing maintainable, secure, and expressive Kotlin code in an idiomatic way.

📌Talk Description

We develop software for people, and performance has a direct impact on the user experience.

This presentation will include details about why high performance is essential when we build software products, an overview of the most common reasons for performance issues, and how Kotlin’s features could be applied to prevent them.

The talk is for all the developers who would like to learn more about how Kotlin works under the hood and why it is a pragmatic language.

So join me at this session, and let’s discover together why Kotlin is loved by the developers and how we can write idiomatic Kotlin code to develop quality products that bring joy to our users.
