Rapid Web API development with Kotlin and Ktor
Time & Location
About the Event
Ktor is a lightweight framework for building asynchronous servers and clients in connected systems using the power and ease of development of Kotlin. It enables rapid development of REST/JSON API (micro-)services, and web applications with minimal coding. Ktor has clear, simple and extensible architecture based on asynchronous pipelines and interceptors organized in multiple phases. It has many similarities with Spring WebFlux and NodeJS/Express for example, but is more streamlined, flexible, well designed and easy to maintain.
The presentation concludes with a live demo showing how to implement a REST service and client from scratch, as well as a sample full-stack Kotlin web application as Multiplatform Project. At the end the developed services are deployed on AWS.
