• Kotlin Collective #1 with Flux Summary!

    Yesterday (March 7th) the team at District4, in partnership with Flux, organised the first edition of the Kotlin Collective.

    We held the event in the Barclays Rise building and the attendees were treated to two live demos of startups built on the backend language.

    The first came from Flux CTO Tom Reay, who gave more of an insight in how the company integrates with your bank before Lead Developer Tobie Warburton launched into a live demo into the successes and challenges (mostly successes!) they’ve had using the niche language.

    Following that the audience were advised to “strap themselves in” for a rousing presentation by Marty Pitt, Founder of Vyne Solutions, who gave a no-holds-barred approach on why he loves Kotlin.

    Both of these talks were finished with a Q&A session before the crowd then capped off an enjoyable evening with an array of pizza, drinks and the chance to network.

    The Kotlin Collective is a new event group that aims to bring together developers who love the language, as well as introducing it to people who may have not considered it before.

    Our next Kotlin Collective will be on Thursday 2nd May (save the date), with more information to come!

    Please let us know what you would like to see in future events!
