Catching up with Jake Wharton

We speak to Jake Wharton about his interest in Kotlin and the adoption process at Square. We cover one of Jake's favourite features which are extension functions and properties and how RxBinding creates these by parsing Java source code.

Additional notes

We chatted for over an hour with Jake, but to keep inline with the duration, some parts were trimmed. But I have asked Jake to come back on the show at some point cause it definitely is great chatting with him and lots of interesting things to cover! Also, apologies for my voice. Unfortunately a cold got the best of me. It won’t happen again!

Well, that’s the plan anyways.
