Summary
Justin Lee starts by looking at the layout and syntax of Kotlin projects. He then moves to a more in-depth discussion on how these new language features combine to present a compelling new alternative to the Java source language. He looks at a few "big ticket" features of the language and its ecosystem that do more to distinguish Kotlin than mere syntax sugar alone can provide.
