Strange Loop

Kotlin: Uncovered

Kotlin, a language for the Java Virtual Machine and browser, does a lot for us to reduce Java boilerplate. But what is it really doing? We will be inspecting some Kotlin decompiled into Java to discover how it does its job. By looking underneath at how it handles data classes, lambdas, and delegation, we can better understand how the language executes what we write. If you're just learning about the language, or already using it in production, you should walk away from this investigation with a deeper understanding of Kotlin, and some tools for continued exploration.
