Kotlin is a marvelous language that makes programming on the JVM fun again. During the design phase of the language, it was said that Kotlin specifically tried to avoid some of the most famous Java Puzzlers. However, having so many advanced features in the language it cannot avoid introducing puzzlers of its own. This talk will present some of the more interesting nuances of syntax or language features with the help of small puzzler programs letting the audience guess their behavior. The mystery will then be revealed with an explanation in a fun way.
Having received an overwhelmingly good feedback from the previous year, I am ready with a set of completely new puzzlers to entertain you among all these really serious talks! Don't miss this sequel to one of the highest rated talks of Kotlinconf 2017!
