Developing applications with Spring Boot is already a pretty magical experience, but could it be better? Can the magic get any more powerful than it already is?
In this talk, we'll look at how Kotlin can be used to reduce boilerplate, increase code quality, and elevate your wizardry.

Come to this session to level up on Spring+Kotlin! (Robes optional)
