Now that Kotlin is the preferred language of Android developers, what is the best library to work with SQLite databases using Kotlin? Room just released support for Kotlin Coroutines, and SqlDelight released support for Kotlin Multi-platform. Room has great documentation and hides a lot of implementation detail, while SqlDelight lets you write raw SQL statements with an Android Studio plugin and then generates type-safe code for you. In this session, you'll see a rundown of these two libraries, along with live coding demos to help you decide which library sounds right for you in this Kotlin world.
