As Kotlin programming language is getting more popular, the creators of the libraries are starting to provide Kotlin API for their frameworks. The number of libraries that provide a nice little DSL grows constantly. The session introduces you to some of those libraries & explains, how Kotlin makes creating the DSL so simple. Lambdas, extension methods, lambdas with the receiver, & other syntactic sugar make it easy to implement DSL in Kotlin. In a live coding demo, we will create a simple DSL for the existing Java classes that could be used from a Kotlin code.
