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.

We chatted for over an hour with Jake, but to keep inline with the duration, some parts were trimmed.
