Spring Boot, the convention-over-configuration-centric framework from the Spring team at Pivotal, marries Spring’s flexibility with conventional, common-sense defaults to make application development on the Java virtual machine (JVM) fly—and make the experience as pleasant as possible. Spring Boot addresses the common functional and nonfunctional requirements that gate quickly moving to production. The framework is as clean as it gets; wouldn’t it be nice if the language matched its elegance?
Josh Long explains how Kotlin, the productivity-focused language from JetBrains, takes up the slack to make the experience leaner, cleaner, and even more pleasant. The Spring and Kotlin teams have worked hard to make sure that Kotlin and Spring Boot are a first-class experience for all developers trying to get to production faster and safer. Come for the Spring and stay for the Bootiful Kotlin.
Josh Long is the Spring developer advocate at Pivotal.
