Live coding server as a function with http4k


Hello, fellow Kotliners!

Time for the next virtual get-together. This time Dmitry Kandalov gives us a live coding session and shows us how to do a server as a function in http4k.

Http4k is a lightweight HTTP library written in Kotlin that enables serving and consuming of HTTP services in a functional and testable way. Unlike many other libraries and frameworks which have complicated abstractions and workflows, http4k captures the essence of communication over HTTP with few simple concepts. In this session, I will explain and demo the core concepts in http4k by live coding from scratch HTTP server for noughts and crosses game.

Dmitry has been programming since DOS times. He spent the last 15 years or so in Java lands most recently working with server-side Kotlin.

We are also looking for awesome speakers and talks. Let us know and don't be shy, we are a nice bunch and are happy to help you with your speaker career!

You can reach us here trough meetup or on #vkug channel on Kotlin Slack.
