Android and iOS development tools have consistently converged over the past few years. The arrival of Kotlin as a second officially supported language for Android development is perhaps the most significant example of this to date.
Kotlin and Swift were designed independently but share many foundational principles. In this talk, I compare and contrast these exciting languages and show you just how similar their implementations are. I also demonstrate how shared architectures and layout design tool evolution have further aided cross platform parity.
If you’re a cross-platform curious iOS developer, then this talk’s for you! There’s never been a better time to widen your horizons.
