Vincent Carrier
The Zen of Kotlin – Tips and tricks for maximizing code maintainability

How is internal visibility in Kotlin different from package visibility in Java? When should you use a lateinit property and when should you use a lazy-delegated property? How do you use with(), let() and apply()? How do you replace your confusing Dagger annotations with something more Kotlin-esque? Find out the answer to these questions and many more with me!

Étienne Caron
