Using Vertx with Kotlin

This talk will cover Vertx from a Kotlin perspective. Vertx is a framework that allows non-blocking and asynchronous network communication and can be used as a server and a client to many external systems including messaging systems and databases. It is built around the concept of event loops which avoid the traditional multi-threading overheads and allow high throughput systems to be developed easily. The talk will introduce Vertx, it will describe why and how to use it in a Kotlin application.
