Hello Ken,
 Great to have you here.
 What is the status of Kotlin in the world of embedded systems and iOS?  I had read that JetBrains has/had intentions of moving the language in those directions.
 Thank you.

The so-called "multi-platform" part of Kotlin allows you to use the same code in many different types of systems. The page here has the basic information.

Wow. It turns out the Kotlin home page https://kotlinlang.org updated *today*, so everything looks different. I don't see the same info about available systems that was there yesterday, so I guess I'll have to look around for it. But the sample GitHub repo here contains everything from iOS Swift to Cocoa to WebAssembly to Python and more. Looks promising.

I should admit, though, that almost everything I've done with Kotlin has been on the JVM. I know the multi-platform approach has a lot of advocates, though.

What? What, what, what? What what tiny ad:
