About this event

Kotlin on the Server! Kotlin on Android! Kotlin on the... browser?

Did you know, since version 1.1, the Kotlin compiler has offered a production-grade Kotlin-to-JavaScript transpiler? Using Kotlin/JS, we can not only use Kotlin for interacting with DOM elements, but we can also use Kotlin to communicate with server-side JavaScript such as Node.js! In this talk, we'll poke around the Kotlin transpiler and examine the javascript code that gets produced. We will go through several small projects to get a better understanding as to why you might choose Kotlin instead TypeScript or JavaScript for your application.

Michael Yotive is not a JavaScript developer. He is a .NET/Android developer at a fancy, local startup called Healthy Roster. When he's not programming or speaking, he can be found at a music venue or on the couch recovering from back surgery.
