Helidon is a great choice for building microservices. It is a collection of libraries that run on a fast web core powered by Netty. There is full support for CDI, a reactive DB client, and full GraalVM native image support. In addition, Helidon provides an implementation of MicroProfile specification that makes it a good choice for enterprise developers.

In this talk, I will tell you a story, how we found out that Helidon and Kotlin are actually a very nice couple, and how actually we “Kotlinized” Helidon! We will use a huge repository of Helidon in Kotlin examples. You will learn about the language features that make developing Helidon applications a breeze. Along the way, we will take a closer look at the Reactive API to boost the performance of your apps.
