Awesome Things You've Missed In Python 3

Session en anglais - Débutant

In the 13 years since Python 3 started diverging from Python 2, Python 3's gained many new features: from co-operative async programming, to optional static typing, and to string templating. These solve performance issues, maintainability issues, and developer productivity.

In 40 minutes, we'll show you the best new features from the last few releases of Python, why they're in Python, and how to use them. We'll have example code!

Kotlin for Java Developers

Session en anglais - Débutant

Kotlin is a new language for the JVM and Android. Kotlin builds upon the feature set of Java, and improves your productivity through better syntax, safer code, and faster build times.

In this talk we’ll introduce you, the Java developer, to Kotlin! We'll see the important differences between Java and Kotlin, and then Kotlin's native features – including null safety and receiver blocks – that let you write safer code more productively.
