We are often faced with large legacy codebases in Java that need to be converted to Kotlin.
Sure, you can let Android Studio do the conversion, but then you end up with a bunch of !!s and inefficient Kotlin code. So where do you begin?
This talk walks you through key steps in converting your Java codebase to efficient, idiomatic Kotlin. After working with multiple clients on legacy projects, I have learned lessons on doing this conversion efficiently, and ensuring that you are taking full advantage of Kotlin. We will walk through the process, along with tips on major patterns that generally require attention. After all, shouldn't every developer's goal be to leave the codebase better than you found it?
