Touchlab will be attending KotlinConf 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark. We anticipate the conference to be a milestone event for the development of Kotlin Multiplatform and its community of practitioners and contributors.

If you’re in town, please let us know because we’d love to meet with you.

If you’re unable to attend the conference, no worries. We’re hosting a Kotlin Multiplatform Fireside Chat in New York City for engineering managers. We’ll discuss and review all the KMP updates from the 2019 conference. Register here.

The following is a list of KMP talks we’ll be attending. If you’d like to be notified when the live stream for these sessions is available, register on the KotlinConf website.

Day 2 (Thursday, December 5th)

Opening Keynote by Andrey Breslav

Time: 9:00 – 10:00

Our take: The KotlinConf keynote is a must watch for anybody that’s interested in Kotlin. Any major new stuff will be announced.

Time: 16:15 – 17:00

Effective Kotlin-Swift Interoperability by John Rodriguez
