Live Webinar: Bootiful Kotlin and IntelliJ IDEA
Date: November 11, 2020
Time: 9:00 am – 10:00 am CET
Here’s the session synopsis:
Spring Boot, the convention-over-configuration centric framework from the Spring team at Pivotal, marries Spring’s flexibility with conventional, common sense defaults to make application development on the JVM not just fast, but pleasant! Spring Boot aims to address the common functional and non-functional requirements that gate quick moves to production. The framework is as clean as it gets, wouldn’t it be nice if the language matched its elegance?
Kotlin, the productivity-focused language from JetBrains, takes up the slack to make the experience leaner, cleaner, and even more pleasant!
The Spring and Kotlin teams have worked hard to ensure that Kotlin and Spring Boot offer a first-class experience for all developers trying to get to production faster and safer. Come for the Spring and stay for the Bootiful Kotlin.
If you have any questions on this topic, you can submit them now or during the webinar. To ask your questions now, post them as comments to this blog. To ask them during the webinar, please use the chat window.
Josh will try to answer all your questions during the session. If we run out of time, we’ll try to post the answers to any remaining questions in a follow-up blog post. We’ll do our best to get all your questions answered.
