As described in this announcement on the Spring blog, it is now easy to create a Spring Boot application using Kotlin.
Thanks to a sample geospatial messenger application, we will show how Spring Boot and Kotlin share the same pragmatic, innovative, and opinionated mindset to allow you to build simple but powerful projects.
This talk will provide an opportunity to show how to use a relational database without JPA in order to use advanced PostgreSQL functionalities (like its powerful spatial database extender PostGIS or native JSON support) while keeping a lightweight stack.
Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
