Kotlin is *Way* More Than Just Android

For many, whenever Kotlin is mentioned, it's assumed that an Android conversation is coming.  Many seem to assume that Kotlin is just an Android language.  But that's simply not true.  Kotlin is an amazing language with a rich ecosystem for writing server side applications and services.  In our brief time together, I'll give a quick overview of Kotlin for those in the audience that haven't seen it before.  After all, the syntax is half the fun!  Then we'll go over a number of great libraries available for development on the server (and the desktop!) and not once have to touch the Android emulator!
