Migrating our micro services from Java to Kotlin – yet another awesome journey”

by Björn Wendland

This talk elaborates our awesome journey migrate all our micro services from Java to Kotlin.
We will take a closer look at the challenges we faced as a team and the impact on our day to day work in an agile environment and how we overcame technical hurdles integrating with Spring Boot and introducing async workflows using Kotlin coroutines.
Finally we discuss at the actual benefits that we gained by moving all our micro services to Kotlin and do a critical review of our journey and an outlook at things to come.
