James’ Top 5 Kotlin Things to Get Excited About in 2022

with James Ward


2022 is a super exciting year for Kotlin across the many different ways it can be used: mobile, server, web, desktop, etc. As a new Product Manager for Kotlin at Google, I’m still learning about all the amazing things happening with Kotlin. In this session I will share my top 5 things to get excited about in 2022.

About the speaker

James Ward

Kotlin Product Manager @ Google

James Ward is a nerd / software developer who shares what he learns with others through presentations, blogs, demos, and code. After over two decades of professional programming, he is now a self-proclaimed Typed Pure Functional Programming zealot but often compromises on his ideals to just get stuff done. After spending too many sleepless nights in data centers repairing RAID arrays, he now prefers higher-level cloud abstractions with appropriate escape hatches. James is a huge Open Source proponent, hoping to never get burned by lock-in again.
