Abstract:
The concept of a coroutine is fairly old already. In the 1960s, computer scientists began describing it, and since then,
multiple languages have incorporated coroutines as a tool for writing asynchronous code.
This talk will give an overview of Kotlin's approach to coroutines and how they help you structure your code.
Let's see what coroutines are, how they look like and how they support us in writing concurrent code for the JVM, JavaScript and other platforms.
It has never been a better time to get started with Kotlin coroutines as JetBrains has just released them in a 1.0 version.
