We have almost 20 years of Scala experience between us and have experience with many other languages. Recently we have jumped onto Kotlin because it looks very promising as Java competitor.
Of course, there is no one size fits all solution. We will show how the two languages compare and explain why and when you should pick one over the other. Or maybe should consider some else altogether.
