Spring Boot and Kotlin, a match made in Heaven

Speaker: Nicolas Frankel

Despite being quite recent, Spring Boot has seen a spectacular start as an amazing kickstarter for Spring-based application. You can now start your project in a matter of minutes, not days!

On the other hand, you're still using Java, with all its ceremony regarding code... Wouldn't it be great if we could pair Spring Boot with a powerful yet simple language?

In this talk, I'll live code a Spring Boot application using Kotlin, the friendly language provided by JetBrains. Come discover how you can now cut through all the red tape and finally focus only the important stuff.
