Riccardo is an inquiring and experienced Java / Kotlin Developer with a passion for solving complex problems. Known by his colleagues as the Kotlin Hipster (probably because of the beard), he is the go-to guy for everything Kotlin-related. He works for JDriven, where he shares his passion and drive with other enthusiasts.
With so many options available for asynchronous programming on the JVM, it can be hard to keep up. Enter Java Virtual Threads, the new and upcoming feature in Java that promises to change the game. Lightweight, non-blocking, and more efficient than traditional threads, Java Virtual Threads are poised to become the go-to tool for efficient asynchronous programming. But what about Kotlin Coroutines, the popular alternative for asynchronous programming on the JVM? Will they become obsolete?
In this talk, we'll dive deep into the new Java Virtual Threads feature and examine how they work. We'll also explore their potential impact on Kotlin Coroutines and the advantages and limitations of each approach. We'll show how they can be used together to create powerful and efficient asynchronous programming models.
This talk is designed to be accessible to developers of all skill levels. Whether you're new to asynchronous programming or an experienced developer, you'll come away with a better understanding of the latest trends and how to apply them to your own projects.
Join me for this exciting talk and witness the Async Showdown as we compare Java Virtual Threads and Kotlin Coroutines to determine the future of efficient asynchronous programming!
