Touchlab attended KotlinConf 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark. As anticipated, the conference was a milestone event for the development of Kotlin Multiplatform and its community of practitioners and contributors.
VIDEOS! There will most likely be ‘official’ videos published soon, but the content is already up in the live stream so we organized links to each talk for you.
This post also contains reactions to Kotlin Multiplatform sessions attended by Touchlab’s Ben Whitley (multiplatform mobile engineer with iOS background) and Kevin Galligan (Partner).
Before we jump in, we’d like to call out two important moments from the conference:
1. During his keynote, Kotlin Lead Language Designer Andrey Breslav highlighted Touchlab as a critical community member to JetBrains’ mission to usher in a new era of mobile development with Kotlin Multiplatform (view clip).
2. During the closing Q&A panel an audience member asked about approaches for getting iOS developers onboard for a KMP pilot. JetBrains’ VP of Developer Advocacy Hadi Hariri recommended organizations speak to Touchlab as we’re actively working with clients on this exact topic (view clip).
