Kotlin: for those of us that may not have even heard of Kotlin, it is a programming language that combines object-orientated and functional programming features. The title of Katie Levy and Shelby Cohen's talk at Lambda World is a clever play on words or in this case abbreviation, as they explain what the f Kotlin is.
We, as two entry level engineers, took on the challenge of introducing Kotlin and Functional Programming to our company, Intuit. Even though you all know Kotlin is a great language, we overcame the obstacles associated with a large company structure of having a common tech stack. In addition, Kotlin provided a natural transition for OOP Java developers to use Functional Programming Paradigms. Hear about how, in less than two years, we went from getting our diplomas to gaining influence and driving change at a major technology company, and how you can do it too.
