Kotlin Masterclass

Garth Gilmour and Eamonn Boyle will be delivering their Creating a Microservices Architecture with Kotlin, Ktor and Event Streams online masterclass on the 10th December 2020. Delivered in conjunction with GOTO, this is a fast-paced, hands-on workshop that will guide you through how to create resilient RESTful web services using Kotlin and Ktor.

What you will learn

The masterclass is built around three of the 'rising stars' in server-side development - the Kotlin programming language, the Ktor services framework and the support for event streaming provided by frameworks like Kafka.

Starting from first principles we will take a sample problem and model it as a set of interacting services, using Kubernetes to simplify the deployment. Along the way we will discuss the different architectural options available and how they can be applied to produce a reactive design.

By the end of the day you will know:

  • The fundamentals of programming in Kotlin (if you didn't already)
  • How to create and deploy resilient RESTful services using Ktor
  • Options for flexibly connecting services (such as Kafka streams)
  • Pro's and cons of the different approaches to Reactive Design
