Kotlin at Google I/O
Last week was a very exciting week for Kotlin. To begin with, Google announced first-class support for Kotlin on Android, at their annual developer conference, Google I/O.
I was fortunate enough to take part in the event and gave a short talk on Kotlin alongside Andrey. If you’ve still haven’t played with Kotlin and would like to know some of the benefits it offers, this talk might help convince you. If it doesn’t, well 9:24*. I’ll keep trying!
Kotlin at Spring I/O
Secondly, Pivotal announced the release of Spring Framework version 5, with full support for Kotlin at their Spring I/O conference in Barcelona. There’s no video available yet, but you can see some of the features in the early preview blog post and slides from Sébastien Deleuze.
It’s been a really exciting few weeks and we’re very grateful to everyone that believed in Kotlin. It is your passion and devotion that have made these things happen.
Thank you for your continued support!
P.S.: Don’t forget we have our own KotlinConf coming up in November.
*Apologies. It really was a slip
