Kotlin/Native is being used by Kotlin Multiplatform when producing library for iOS (among other native targets). When I moved from writing Android apps in Java to writing iOS apps in Objective-C, I was lost and desperately tried to find commonalities between JVM and Native, to ease the pain.

In this talk I'd like to take you on a journey through the native world. We'll look at the main differences from JVM, how linking works and some best practices to keep in mind when working with binaries.
