Talk: Spring Java vs Spring Kotlin discussion (pros and cons of Kotlin migration)

Kotlin is approaching us from everywhere, so it’s time to sit and discuss: what benefits it brings, and how we can use them to make our lives easier? We’ll go through comparison of Kotlin and Java in general and specifically in Spring, trying to challenge each other with problems you may face in your day-to-day routine. Is it time to migrate from Java to Kotlin and how to do it properly? Where Kotlin is standing today in the world of Backend engineering and is it ready to become the main choice for big projects? These are common Kotlin-related questions and in our discussion we’ll try to find the truth.
