Intro to Web Dev with Kotlin - Zachary Smith

With front-end web apps becoming larger and more complex, and Node.js allowing Javascript to be used on the server side, the language has had a rapid rise in popularity. But for many JVM/Android developers, the thought of getting into front end web development and the Javascript ecosystem can seem quite unpleasant. However with Kotlin's ability to target JS, we can leverage the language features we've come to love, to make the experience a bit more fun. In this talk, we'll explore how we can build a Kotlin front-end application and even use Kotlin to interact with Node.js on the server.

Moshi: Kotlin Codegen - Brian Plummer

Learn how to leverage Moshi’s Kotlin codegen so your data model can be immutable and quickly parsed reflection free. I’ll discuss why this is important to us as developers, integration details, and how Moshi implemented this feature!
