Brave New Multiplatform World

November 1, 2023 marked Kotlin Multiplatform's stable release, though many firms had adopted it earlier. From shared logic to network and database access, its versatility shines. Recent updates like Compose Multiplatform and Kotlin 2.0.0's K2 compiler highlight JetBrains' innovation. Carlos Mota, an Android GDE, explores these advancements, reflecting on Kotlin's state in today's tech landscape.

About this event

November 1, 2023 - the day that Kotlin Multiplatform became stable and production-ready. Although this marks an important landmark in Multiplatform development, truth be told, a lot of companies have been using it on their apps for some years now. Some share the entire business logic; others share network access; and then there are ones that are only used for database access. This is one of the brilliant features that we have. Anyone can decide what's worth sharing.

Days later, we saw the new release of Compose Multiplatform, then the launch of Fleet, and while I'm writing this description, we now have Kotlin 2.0.0 with the new K2 compiler enabled by default. At this moment, it almost feels like a magic trick where I'm watching JetBrains pull new tools and versions out of their wrists. It's mesmerising!

In this talk, we're going through all of these new releases and analysing the current state of Kotlin and Compose Multiplatform in this brave new world.


Carlos Mota is an Android GDE from Portugal, Android Tech Lead & KMP Architect at AVANCEE Software and professor in Harbour.Space University. He can easily be spotted either working on Android applications written in Kotlin or developing them along with Kotlin Multiplatform. An enthusiast for new technologies, he's always trying to reach those last 20% of all of his side projects that seem to be really far away. He loves to share his knowledge with others either by giving talks, teaching, writing or along with a cold beer in the nearest pub. GDG Coimbra organizer and Kotlin evangelist, he also has a huge passion for travel, photography, space and the occasional run.
