About this event

This month David Lucas will be introducing us to the wonderful world of Kotlin microservices!


Although Kotlin was introduced around 7 years ago, Google has created a new energy around this statically typed language. This session will take a look at how Kotlin is more than just a mobile language for Android. We will look at how Kotlin fits on the server side and what role it might play with microservices. Some examples using web services will be provided.
