We chat with Brent Watson about his involvement and background in Kotlin, as well as starting a Kotlin meet-up, getting people to participate and lessons learned.
We discuss scripting with Kotlin, its uses, its shortcomings and how the Open Source project kscript enhances on what Kotlin provides out of the box.
We talk to Jon and Clint about Micrometer, a new Pivotal project that helps in application monitoring, whether you're deploying hundreds of microservices or just a couple of small apps.
We chat with Nikolay Igotti, on everything Kotlin/Native. What it is, how it interops with the existing ecosystem, how the memory management model works, and much much more.
