Kotlin is a modern language, suitable for everything from mobile apps to cloud computing. It combines many of the best features we expect from modern programming languages, while adding a number of unique solutions that solve many of the everyday problems we face when writing code. Beyond the JVM and Android, Kotlin code can target Javascript and native platform, enabling the language to cover all levels of a product stack.

This workshop will focus on how to build full-stack applications using Kotlin and deploying them in the cloud. In particular, we’ll cover these topics:

  • Basics of the Kotlin programming language
  • Ktor and Spring framework
  • Serialization techniques
  • Kotlin/JS and React
  • Async tasks with coroutines
  • Kotlin and Java interoperability

Notes and comments

This is an introduction workshop for building backend and frontend solutions with Kotlin. It targets any developers regardless of their background. We will provide the required setup for their laptops for Windows, Linux and macOS on a number of USB sticks so we can get started faster without having to wait for everyone to download all required software, and there we'll post a link so people can prepare ahead of time if they want to.
This workshop is done together with Sebastiano Poggi from JetBrains.
