Kotlin is a programming language originally created to improve upon Java as a language for industry. The focus on industry has since evolved the language to a broader purpose, and a broader range of first-class targets (JS, JVM, Android, Native) and provides easy bidirectoinal access to existing work in these targets. As a result, a Kotlin developer can bring their knowledge and modern language features with them to most projects. In this talk, I will demonstrate Kotlin's syntatic and pragmatic prowess in Java, Web and Fullstack applications. We wil also compare it to other languages and see how well it interoperates with those languages and their established ecosystems.I will also demo Kotlin's fast compile time for live, typesafe frontend development on a fullstack application
