Welcome to episode 4 of A Touch of Multiplatform (ATOM)! This is our podcast dedicated to Kotlin Multiplatform technology in production and produced for you by JetBrains and Touchlab. In this episode, we sit down to talk with Meetup’s Colin Lee and Annyse Davis about how their teams evaluated multiplatform options before going all in with KMM. With them, we discuss how Meetup leveraged mob programming and empowering their iOS engineers to better understand the benefits and challenges of KMM.
