Automate your workflows with Kotlin

Forget everything about bash and perl!


From git housekeeping to releasing. From keeping a sane backlog to handling internationalization and monitoring status, the life of a developer involves more than meets the eye.

This talk will be a feedback about how we use Kotlin extensively to:

  • automate the dev workflows with command-line apps on dev machines.

  • achieve CI independence with kotlin runners on CI machines.

  • run Kotlin on the server using the gradle appengine plugin.

  • ditch bash and perl and use kscript instead.

That's a lot to cover and the goal of this talk is not to dig into each technology but more to inspire and show the range of possibles opened by Kotlin.
