Kotlin Mullets - Business in the Front, Party in the Back


Duration: 50 mins
James Ward
Developer Advocate, Google

Ever since developers broke apart systems into front and back-ends, we’ve longed to partially reunite them with a shared language. The benefits of code reuse and shared tooling are compelling but is this nirvana possible? In this session we will explore building both the front (mobile and web) and back-end of an application with a shared Kotlin codebase. You will learn how to setup the build, share code, and deploy the back-end as a serverless app.
