We sit down with Erik to discuss gradient descents and how understanding this can lead to demystifying machine learning. We talk about the value of knowing how things work under the covers, as well as maths, functional programming, and many other topics, including why he chose Kotlin, and what he likes and dislikes of the language
We sit down with the folks from the team at AWS that work on QLDB, to discuss what Amazon Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB) is, their usage of Kotlin, why they choose Kotlin over Java for this new project, and how their overall experience has been.
We chat with Roman Belov about the work he's doing at JetBrains with Kotlin for Data Science. We discuss the approach they're taking to work with the existing ecosystem as opposed to try and replicate it. How this is different from some of the other efforts under way and the direction in which they're moving when it comes to Data Science with Kotlin on multiple platforms.
Jetpack Compose is the new UI toolkit from Google that is Kotlin First. It takes advantage of Kotlin's Compiler Plugin Architecture to provide a performant UI layer for Android development (albeit extensible to other platforms). We sit down with lead of the project to discuss what it is and plans around it.
We sit down with Michael Pardo to discuss the MVU pattern, taking a brief look at all the other patterns that have existed for UI development over the years. We then talk about Oolong, a library for Kotlin for facilitating MVU in your applications.
