Replacing React Native with Kotlin Multiplatform at Wantedly | #TouchlabShare

We discussed why the Wantedly mobile team originally explored cross-platform mobile development and why they switched to Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile (KMM).

In this episode of #TouchlabShare we were joined all the way from Japan by Wantedly engineer Malvin Sutanto. We discussed why the mobile team originally explored cross-platform mobile development and why they switched to Kotlin Multiplatform after initial development with React Native. We also covered how Malvin and team made use of Touchlab’s KMM resources, including KaMP Kit (https://github.com/touchlab/KaMPKit), a collection of code and tools designed to get teams started fast with KMM.
