We chat with Alec Strong about SQL Delight, the multiplatform data access library that have written from the ground up using Kotlin. We discuss some of the differences with other data access frameworks as well as the benefits that Kotlin has provided them.
We talk to a few folks at Uber Engineering about their adoption of Kotlin in a non-conventional setting where they're using Buck. We also discuss some of the work they've been doing in terms of performance analysis with Kotlin and the differences with Java. This work has been published and available for public access (see show notes). Note: first couple of minutes had some feedback issues which were resolved.
We talk to Ryan about Ktor, the asynchronous framework for connected systems, developed and maintained by JetBrains. We talk about how it can be used for developing server side applications and its differences with some other existing ones.
Christina and I sit down to talk about submitting talks to conferences, and in particular about KotlinConf. That and some chat about cats and dogs!
We catch up with Thomas Nield to discuss what's been going with Kotlin in relation to Data Science and Machine Learning. Thomas gives us an update on the work he's been focusing on and some of the new things happening.
