A TypeScript Fan's KotlinJS Adventures
In this talk, the dynamic duo will go out of their comfort zone and recreate a Breakout clone for the browser using KotlinJS.
At Instil Software they standardize on Kotlin for server-side development. Within the training team, they offer a Kotlin native workshop, for which Garth and Eamonn wrote a Kotlin native version of the classic game Breakout.
They will make use of React, Redux and use React Three Fiber for WebGL graphics. Moreover, they will explore what this transition to KotlinJS is like for a TypeScript fanboy and try to answer some questions along the way.
You'll learn how the tooling, libraries and language features compare, what things tripped up and whether you should switch and use it on your next project
