We sit down with JetBrains Developer Advocate Sebastian Aigner, and discuss Kotlin/JS. We cover the new features, the efforts being taken to lower the entry bar to Kotlin/JS, et al.
In this special episode recorded for International Women's Day, we're joined with our good friends and colleague Svetlana Isakova, Florina Muntenescu, Huyen Tue Dao, and Christina Lee to discuss amongst other things what idiomatic Kotlin is, the importance of style guides, comprehensible code, and many other things!
Sebastian has been an advocate for Kotlin at his company and they jumped on board with multiplatform. Hear their story of what path they took to accomplish this and their challenges.
We chat with Vladislav about Kotless, a Kotlin Serverless Framework, which eliminates the need for a deployment DSL (like Terraform, SAM, CloudFormation or CDK) and makes serverless computations easily understandable for anyone familiar with event-based architectures.
We catch up with Ken on what he's been doing lately and discuss his new book around Kotlin recipes, called Kotlin Cookbook. We also discuss where one should draw the line when teaching concepts and how often to dive into the details. We also briefly touch up on his new book!
