Developing a Geospatial Webservice With Kotlin and Spring Boot [Video]

Spring Boot has made big progress to support Kotlin, including an upcoming Kotlin-to-JavaScript transpiler. See how Kotlin, Spring Boot, and PostgreSQL can work together.

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.

We will also demonstrate the upcoming Kotlin-to-JavaScript transpiler that allows you to share code between client and server (domain model, validation) and to code your frontend with autocomplete, static typing, and so on.

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
