The Triumphs and Tribulations of Kotlin/Native In Practice - UIKonf, Berlin, Germany - May 2019

Newest iteration of my Kotlin/Native talk, now with updated Gradle recommendations!

Abstract:
The promise of write-once-run-everywhere has haunted native mobile developers since the first time someone whispered the words “phone gap”. But what if there was a way to have cross-platform development with a modern, type-safe language? JetBrains is trying to make this happen with Kotlin/Native, which compiles to LLVM bytecode, and can run on iOS, Android, and even the web. Learn more about some of the benefits of working with Kotlin/Native, some of the drawbacks, and a few of the (current) potential dealbreakers when it comes to using this exciting new technology in a real app.
