Discussion on: Kotlin on Android: Not a big surprise, actually

At least as interesting as the choice for Kotlin on Android is the emergence of Kotlin Native. It's only just under development, but having Kotlin target LLVM directly may mean that we're able to create business logic and domain models in Kotlin and share that code across platforms (in a way that's much less troublesome than using C++ as a cross platform language).

This is something I'll be tracking for my own teams over the next year.

I'm super excited for Kotlin Native! I've been using Kotlin for a while now. Wondering how much it's going to differ from JVM.

Yeah, I am also really looking forward to Kotlin native!

However, we need to be careful not to tell our Swift friends "Kotlin is better!!!111" 😉
