Enabling Kotlin Multiplatform Success: The Android Jetpack Journey

Join Android’s Jetpack Team for some exciting new updates and a technical deep dive into the next chapter of our Kotlin Multiplatform journey!

In this talk, we’ll be giving an overview of the state of Kotlin Multiplatform in Jetpack and providing updates on Kotlin Multiplatform-enabled Jetpack libraries. We will also share our process of migrating a well-established Jetpack library - from leveraging Kotlin to its full potential for technical groundwork, to resolving complex dependencies across platforms by extending existing tools or introducing powerful new Multiplatform APIs.

Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at Kotlin Multiplatform in Jetpack & learn how you can apply these techniques to your projects!
