As teased in episode 40, today we’re going to have on stage Kscript and Marcin Kuszczak!
Kscript brings the power of Kotlin to the scripting world. It makes writing scripts a pleasure thanks to the elegant Kotlin APIs, and allows you to directly use tons of libraries and dependencies from the Maven ecosystem.
Kscript recently moved under the kscripting organization and Marcin is here on stage to tell us about the future of this project.
