Description

Hands on: Exploring Quarkus with Kotlin

Let’s meet in the Red Hat Open Innovation Labs to write some code in good company. We plan to experiment how to develop microservices with Kotlin running on Quarkus, and are open to debate about the potential of this new very promising platform. We’ll start with a short introduction to Quarkus by Sanne Grinovero, followed by a hands on workshop together with Uberto Barbini, in which we’ll run Kotlin code on Quarkus and have fun with the revolutionary developer friendliness of both these technologies combined.

No experience with Quarkus is necessary, no Kotlin experience is required either; proficiency of Java is highly recommended.

Remember to bring your laptop with Java, maven and Kotlin configured on your IDE. GraalVM tools and Docker are also needed for the native compilation.
