Touchlab Share is a technical podcast for developers, managers and engineering executives interested in strategies to share common code and accelerate mobile engineering with Kotlin Multiplatform.
Open Source Library Development for Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile (KMM)
In this recorded episode of #TouchlabShare, we ask Touchlab mobile engineer Russell Wolf about his KMM open-source library, Multiplatform Settings.
He goes over the impact the library has had on his career, how he incorporates feedback from consumers to guide the project’s roadmap and code and API design decisions he’s made along the way.
The story of how he decided to develop an open-source project for Kotlin Multiplatform is a great one! It started with a call to action by Kevin Galligan in which he said the KMM community needed developers to build libraries. Russell took Kevin up on his challenge and the library, Multiplatform Settings was born.

[iOS Developer Tutorial]: Sharing Common Code with Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile (KMM)
Touchlab Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile (KMM) and iOS engineer Ben Whitley developed a getting started fast with KMM tutorial for iOS developers. In this recording of an earlier #TouchlabShare live session, Ben walks a live audience through the tutorial, share tips on how to convince your iOS developers to pilot KMM and then opens it up for questions from the audience.
You can register to immediately receive the KMM getting started tutorial for iOS engineers on the Touchlab website.
You can also access video of this session on Youtube.
Where to start with Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile (KMM)?
Identifying candidates for common code sharing can be difficult. In this recorded session of Touchlab Share, engineering manager Sam Hill discusses common places we recommend clients start common code sharing with Kotlin Multiplatform. We also field questions from the audience. If you're interested in starting small with KMM (and with minimal risk), please register to receive KaMP Kit, a collection of code and tools to get you started fast with KMM.
A framework to evaluate cross-platform solutions (React Native, Flutter, Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile, Xamarin)
Touchlab Director of Project Strategy Justin Mancinelli walks listeners through a framework we developed for evaluating multiplatform solutions.
