The success of any technology is depending on its ecosystem. We want to see meaningful APIs and effective SDKs, but we also rely on the community ecosystem and its support. Whereas K/N is relying on Kotlin as a language, K/N will need the support of libraries that provide with extra functionality. JetBrains is doing a great job in this direction, but this needs to rely as well on the community. Learn on this talk what are the current State of the Art libraries for K/N, how to get started with them and apply them in your projects. We will showcase libraries from some of the main actors in the K/N realm (JetBrains, Touchlab), as well as some of the independent agents arising.
