At Buffer we regularly hold what we call ‘Snackchats’. These are short & informal presentations of something that we want to share with our team which help to build on our engineering culture and help each other to grow as engineers. Anyone on the team has the opportunity to give these talks 🙂 Once a discussion has been proposed, a day/time can be picked ready for people to grab a drink (and snack!) to take some time out of their day to learn something new.

These have been happening at Buffer for some time. However, we have now decided that we’re going to start sharing these outside of our place of work. This ties in with our value of Transparency and allows us to share our learnings with even more people. So grab your drink of choice, your favorite snack and let’s learn something new together 🚀

In this Snackchat, Victoria Gonda gave us an introduction to the Kotlin programming language. We reviewed some of the language features, and benefits of using it. In addition, we went over how you can get started with it on the JVM, with JavaScript, and Native.
