Leading Kotlin/Wasm to the Moon at JetBrains

I’ve been writing Kotlin in Kotlin at JetBrains for more than 10 years. Now I'm leading the Kotlin/Wasm team. Interested in compilers, interpreters, and VMs.

Kotlin/Wasm: Present and Future

Kotlin is a modern statically typed programming language developed by JetBrains, designed to be used across different platforms. WebAssembly a portable binary format, designed to be fast and safe, enables running high-performance code in various environments.

Combining the two technologies, Kotlin/Wasm allows developers to write efficient and portable code that can be executed in any Wasm-enabled environment and build from high-performance web applications to serverless functions.

In this talk, we’ll have a look at the most recent developments in Kotlin/Wasm: tools, compiler, and the ecosystem around it. We will showcase practical examples, demonstrating how Kotlin/Wasm could be used inside and outside of browsers. Looking ahead, we will see the future prospects of Kotlin & WebAssembly. Come and learn what's new and exciting!
