Asynchrnous programming with Kotlin coroutines
Coroutines is a new feature in Kotlin. It allows for writing asynchronous code almost just like if it was regular/synchronous. This makes coroutines a great alternative to existing approaches for writing asynchronous applications.
In this session, I’ll show how coroutines work in Kotlin. You’ll learn about new syntax and implementation details. You’ll find out about the differences between coroutines-based and reactive-based solutions. You’ll also see a sample Spring-based application which uses coroutines.
