Rust is a fast rising star in the pantheon of programming languages and comes with some interesting properties in regard to Multiplatform. On the other side, Kotlin promises with KMP as well Multiplatform capabilities. Are both set up to be rivals, or could both complement each other? What could Kotlin learn from Rust, and where might Rust borrow from Kotlin? The talk will give you an opinionated introduction into KMP with Rust in terms of tooling, developer experience and all the things I discovered so far. It will not sell you a ready to go product, but rather an idea. Let’s figure out if this is the beginning of a love story and how we can write bugs once and ship them to many platforms!
