Talk: Lesson learned - Kotlin on backend
by Krzysztof Korbacz and Paweł Pyzik
Have you recently wondered if this new backend project is a good moment to jump into Kotlin, but all you know about it was those blog posts and presentations saying how cool is it?
Maybe it is good idea to ask someone brave or stupid enough who has already done it? Then here we are to tell you our story of transformation from Java backend devs to Kotlin backend developers.
We will tell you what pitfalls we see in Kotlin and which of its features we appreciate the most. We will walk you through the recipes we gathered in our last project. Last but not least we will tell you if we would choose Kotlin again, knowing what we know today :)
Discussion: Can your team benefit from migrating to Kotlin?
After talk we would like to invite to you to discussion about benefits and drawback of switching from java to Kotlin. We will share stories from people who managed to convince their product owners to taka a risk of shifting to Kotlin.
