‘Context parameters’ from the language design perspective

‘Context parameters’ is one of the most anticipated Kotlin features. Last year we unveiled a preliminary version which generated a lot of feedback. The Kotlin team has been working hard since then to finalize its design. The talk will overview the current design status of ‘Context parameters’. We’ll discuss the following topics:

  • The motivation behind adding ‘Context parameters’;
  • How it fits into the existing syntax;
  • Practical examples of how it could be applied.
