We chat with Tyler and Nate about the adoption of Kotlin and what is mostly a Groovy shop and how they've gradually moved towards Kotlin while being able to interop with Groovy and Grails.
Nate is a Chicago-based engineer who works in Kotlin and Groovy on a service that supplies hotel inventory to all Rocketmiles products. He uses Kotlin in combination with Grails, Apache Spark, Dropwizard, and Spring Framework. Tyler is a Backend engineer at Rocketmiles, specializing in Identity and Access Management systems, as well as integrating with the loyalty programs that Rocket partners with. He's also a remote work advocate, currently working out of Upstate New York
