The main languages for mobile developers can be seen very different when observed by developers of the two native platforms. But are they really so far? In this talk we will tackle the similarities and differences between Kotlin and Swift, the advantages that could bring to the companies to bring their iOS and Android devs closer and the real experience working with both of them at XING.
