Kotlin Mutliplatform, reality and future plans
By Alexander Podkhalyuzin and Roman Belov from JetBrains

One of the most successful multiplatform technologies is JVM, however, mobile platforms gave us new challenges, which nobody solved yet in a decent way.
In this talk, we'll show you current possibilities of sharing Kotlin code between Android and iOS. It is quite new technology, so a lot of possibilities are open to you, not only for creating new apps in Kotlin but inventing new popular cross-platform libraries and we'll show how to achieve it as well. And for the talk final, we'll share some future possibilities about making a fullstack application using Kotlin and having common code between backend, frontend, and mobile apps. As part of the whole talk we will take a look into Kotlin/Native basics as it's default backend for iOS apps.


A Co-Platform Pairing Experience
By Thomas Sammons from Novoda

How different really is it to write a native iOS app compared with a native Android app? Are these platforms just different sides of the same coin?
This will be a recounting of the experience of pair programming between iOS and Android. How we went about doing it, the good, bad and the ugly and some interesting insights we had along the way.


RxJava & Coroutines: A Practical Analysis
By Ash Davies from Immobilien Scout

Kotlin has taken the Android world by storm, and is quickly becoming the most popular language, with coroutines approaching stability, does it make sense to replace your RxJava implementations for Coroutines?
Despite the hype, it may not make sense to jump on the bandwagon just yet, with RxJava having already proven its stability and usefulness, and in many cases the comparison between the two frameworks showing that they simply fit different purposes.
In this talk, you can learn how you can utilise the strengths of each framework, how to correctly choose the best solution for the requirements of your project, whether it may be beneficial to migrate or run them concurrently, and how you can start doing so for your project.
