Why Effective Java still matters to Kotlin developers

Effective Java by Joshua Bloch profoundly influenced the design of Kotlin yet by exploring a selection of "items" from the book we will see how it is still just as relevant to Kotlin developers today when we aim to write Effective Kotlin code.

For example, consider how data classes implement equals, and we can see that it doesn't follow the rules suggested and as such is not always optimal.
