Multiplatform Madness With Compose

Compose may have started out on Android, but it has since matured into a multiplatform framework that provides a unified approach to creating clients.

Whether on the Web, Desktop or Mobile, you can share the same language, APIs, patterns, and even custom components. Looking beyond that, you can integrate with the wider multiplatform world of (for example) networking clients, threading libraries, testing utilities, and FP toolkits.

In this workshop, we will first explore, and then extend, a multiplatform UI built for disparate environments. You will deepen your understanding, not just of multiplatform and Compose in general, but also architecting and enhancing DSLs, structured concurrency with coroutines, functional architecture, and the internals of the Kotlin compiler.
