Coroutines for Java Developers

Did you know that coroutines were invented about 50 years ago?

A coroutine is a function that can not only return but also suspend somewhere in the middle and resume later from that point. Coroutines are implemented in Kotlin, an open source, modern, pragmatic and statically typed, multiplatform and JVM programming language.

We’ll use coroutines as the remedy for the callback hell problem of non-blocking server-side applications, graphical, mobile or client applications.

We see how to write an equivalent code a linear looking code with suspend functions. You’ll learn how to apply Kotlin coroutines for your existing project independently of JVM version.

Facts you may not know about Kotlin

Since Kotlin began, back in 2010, many features have appeared in the language, some of them are still going, others only show up in the deepest darkest depths of source repository history.

We will start the talk with several fun facts from Kotlin’s past. You will learn a little about the namesake-island, traits, generics, and type erasure. Writing compact, clear, and idiomatic code will also be one of our topics.

Nowadays, Kotlin is not just the JVM language it was in the very beginning, today it supports JVM, JS, and native platforms, including iOS. Did you know of the possibility to share common code and libraries between these platforms?

Kotlin: Нейтив код с удовольствием

Native with Kotlin/Native

Насколько сложно для Java программиста написать программу, которая работает без виртуальной машины на голом железе? Не нужно бояться! Мы поговорим, как можно это осуществить, даже без виртуальной машины, но с комфортом, к которому мы привыкли с Java. Мы напишем нативный код на Kotlin, современном языке с открытым исходным кодом и статической типизацией, который поддерживает много платформ, включая iOS, Android, JVM, JS, linux, macOS, windows и многие другие. Чтобы было еще интереснее, мы используем в нашей программе на Kotlin библиотеки написанные на С и Objective-C/Swift. Кстати, наш код можно сделать доступным и для этих языков. Напоследок, мы поговорим, как можно написать код на Котлине один раз и скомпилировать его для всех платформ сразу, используя Kotlin Multiplatform projects.

Kotlin: факты, о которых вы, возможно, не знали

Facts you may not know about Kotlin

C момента возникновения Kotlin в 2010 году, в нём появилось очень много всего: какие-то фичи успешно живут, о каких-то можно узнать, только покопавшись в истории репозитория. Мы начнём с забавных фактов из прошлого: вспомним об острове-тезке, трейтах, дженериках и стирании типов. Поговорим и о том, как писать чистый и аккуратный код. Котлин сегодня — это не просто ещё один язык для JVM, он поддерживает JS и компилирует под разные платформы в нативный код, в том числе под iOS. А вы знали, что можно использовать один и тот же код и библиотеки при разработке на разные платформы? Если нет — узнаете на докладе.

Expressive APIs with Kotlin

We like when our code is easy to read and understand. It is indeed hard to design an API to be expressive enough for that. The popular approaches are builders or fluent APIs. Let’s see what one can achieve with the more expressive programming language?

Kotlin language grammar opens the way for it. Extension functions and lambdas are the very first steps in our way to make even exiting Java APIs more expressive. We start the talk with a basic introduction into Kotlin language. In the live coding session, we see, how a long Java code snippet with a builder is enlightened.

Configuration scripts, JSON, or XML are powerful examples of Kotlin APIs or DSLs in action. You’ll know existing libraries and see how to easily create your own APIs. We’ll see the HTML builder and React DOM builder APIs in action too.

From the talk, you will learn how to benefit from Kotlin language grammar to achieve the expressiveness of your code and APIs. You’ll no longer see the magic behind statically typed DSLs in Kotlin, but you will know libraries and patterns to bring it into your project

Coroutines for Java Developers

Did you know that coroutines were invented about 50 years ago? A coroutine is a function that can not only return but also suspend its execution somewhere in the middle, it can be later resumed to continue the execution.Imagine, in Java or JVM, a function that can suspend its execution and free the call stack. Does it give power? It does! It simplifies the callback hell of your non-blocking application. A for-loop is now enough to implement an iterator, that lazily computes the elements. In Kotlin, “suspend” functions can suspend and are called coroutines. And it is the power. We’ll use it as the remedy for the callback hell problem of our non-blocking applications. Of course, we’ll build an iterator with for-loop and yield-return. Coroutines help to offload the work from a UI thread of a desktop or Android applications easily. The main giveaway is you’ll learn how to use Kotlin suspend functions and coroutines to simplify your daily tasks.

Oppsless DevOps

The story, how we made 365 deployments in 365 days.

In the talk, I share my experience from creating and maintaining two regions in-house production service. We started with a set of Ansible scripts and Docker containers. To simplify it we use TeamCity build configurations with many parameters. It took several hours to roll a new build or maintain the system. No matter green-blue deployment was used.

It was timely to maintain. And I decided to make it faster. Now all deployments run by itself automatically in the night, the versions are stored in Consul. The system is resilient.

The bigger a monolithic application, the larger the dependency set. Adding or changing dependencies becomes a tricky task. Similarly, the complexity is in the number of beans and their dependencies in components container. You learn how to split a monolithic SpringFramework ApplicationContext into a set of sub-contexts, how to isolate sub-context internal components, clear their APIs and avoid non-trivial dependencies. Each sub-context can have its own classpath, which tackles the dependency hell problem. After being divided, a monolithic system becomes easier to split into a set of micro-services or processes. From the talk, attendees will learn several practical tips and tricks on how to split component containers into smaller ones to reduce the complexity.

Generating Kotlin Code for Better Refactorings, Tests, and IDE Support [CON3575]

An IDE is so much more than an editor. It helps developers a lot only if it knows something about the code. There are many ways to extend an IDE. This session shows how to extend an IDE without writing any IDE-specific code. It discusses how to create an API library (DSL) in Kotlin (an open source JVM language) and a code generator to empower IDE integration. It also covers applications such as semantics, tests, project models, and refactorings.

GradleSummit

Building Self-Contained Toolset with Gradle

Consider a toolset, which helps to edit configuration files. For a given list of configuration files it generates source code in Kotlin. From the compiled source code it generates configuration files back. Editing the generated source code in IDE helps to view, change, refactor and test configuration easier. The setup of such a toolset from scratch is usually complicated. It contains a tricky IDE configuration, dependency resolution, source code compilation, classpath construction and test running.

The complexity makes such a toolset hard to use in practice and in continuous integration. Our goal is to simplify the setup. For this purpose we created an opensource Gradle plugin which will be discussed in this talk. The talk contains examples and tips that illustrate how one can hide and reuse tricky details and turn a domain specific toolset into a easy-to-use self-contained piece of software
