Kotlin for Fun for Spring Fans

Shinya Yanagihara - VMware

It has already been 7 years since the first version of Kotlin was released. When it was first released, I didn’t use Kotlin much because I thought it was only for mobile development, and it wasn’t until about a year later that I realized that Kotlin could also be used for server-side development, which is where I started using it.

Now, it’s 2023, and no one thinks Kotlin is only for Android development, right? You still think it is a language for mobile development?

I myself have been enjoying the productivity of Kotlin itself since I started using it for server-side development. It is truly the developer experience that a programming language provides.

And Kotlin is supported by your favorite Spring, which you have seen on

In this session, I would like to share with you the joy of Spring development with Kotlin.
