Greenfield Kotlin at OLX

How do you go about adopting Kotlin for a financial application when you're asked questions about it's validity, why it won't become another {xyz} language or be abandoned? How do you get people that don't know Java to use Kotlin? These and more things are discussed with Benjamin and Guido from OLX Group, where they talk about their usage of Kotlin on the backend with DropWizard for their financial payment system.
