Kotlin Multiplatform with John OReilly

Nine hundred started with sort fulltime masters speech recognition. You're using your wall things back then. That was sort of. You can do that about sums watching the cotton. Dl talk yesterday. Where a couple of lines of code can do that. But this writing everything from scratch in c in terms of audio processing fifties and and i've been never confronted themselves and there was there was a need for something. Kinda graphical and i don development for awhile and answer. Windows three came out. I think you're on june nineteen ninety and i So cool your concern dusen. Windows graphical is from speech patterns. And mike you're next so forth down again more chance occurrences a low company was starting to do windows and said hey you know obviously not too many people doing that stage said hey. Join to join to join us so i saw that again. That's what started the decade of doing windows see transitioning cpas plus windows. St kfc com hiram. It's funny because obviously was been toying with a proposed for desktop right now sort of i don't know what you call it control back. Go throwbacks ecstasy. That's what's what's old is new again. So when when did you. When did you actually start with With developing kotlin than so. I'm trying to was the announcement. Okay oh in about five years ago now. Is it a country member. anyway there was a natural icon. I you know to be honest. I hadn't i know a lot of people being aware columnist stage. And we're very excited about it. I i was a little bit in the dark. It wasn't something new to me. I haven't even wear and to another coin spos- as in most companies. We probably weren't in a position to start using cotton straight away. You know And i have had. And i have an obligation to restore cocoa puffs. It's actually it's an aug project hasn't up hope people's find somewhat useful. That actually does but for me. Personally i use it i e kind of overloaded somewhat in terms of as a pop from try technology so when the under doctors coronas came up first of all Used to try goes out. And then went. Kalkin emerged start reggie microsoft katainen and similarly montecot from down the road and And then you know as is frequently. The case trying that out. There then became a platform. Say okay now in the workplace okay. This looks interesting. Let's start to use his here and then shortly after that. Then maybe down. The road asked announced. Maybe we start to use it working and we start to use a gradually in africa project and we ended up doing a for various reasons. We did a company rewrite of our project and we started from the ground up dan with cartoon or katelyn underdog extra bonus cortines and so forth. So so is this your first multiplatform project or not so does sage. i wasn't using work. Under gorbachev sort of had supposed to give you know a little bit more brought on their. You know like this. Be working on mobile for eleven years now and i guess over time like many of us you know we would have source accession cross platform. I guess there's always sort of cross pot from monty python but cross platforms kind of sounders. Right once so reproaches. The dab senator in reactnative approaches. And you know over the course of various projects in the previous companies in new product. Monday or somebody coming in that. Have read some headline. This allows you to do everything in one place all your code face. We don't need to have all these separate irish and each time you took sort of had to move. That weren't approved was an us. Disapprove that dickey. We're gonna do competitions. And we had to prove that this wasn't suitable for the type about. We were developing this platform. it's christians. We needed an end user experience. We need But i'm saying that is supposed as a segue to you know I guess what come interesting monte platform. Because when i when cosimo mantra was aware of it i think we're not to those nineteen towards the end of that. It's sort of immediately struck me as okay. This is a pragmatic saint approach finally to the sharing of code across multiple platforms mobile. I've been involved by the way sort of number of initiatives over the years for free. Willion superstars shared code into office. Which is at least somewhat more sane approach but. I don't know if you guys have worked with john. I had to work jay. You know unfortunately goldstone feel like. That's one of those topics that if you can you usually avoid it. I guess yeah if you can avoid using it as well as we various we had to use it in their practical use. And it's one thing using stateless knight ridder touch it can function as in which you maybe media engine i. I just wanted to say on the topic of jane. I think this is. This is going to become a bit more interesting again now. Also with With all the topics around compulsive for desktop because of a bunch of lake system integrations. I dunno things like global hot keys or stuff the. jvm just doesn't really expose. so i think some some of the people at the forefront. They're wanting to write libraries. Yeah they might might have to go that route anyway. Yeah you know if if you're using it. I robot michael state library that district district functions wanting using your compete shared logic with the framework with the training involved with life cycle aspects. Dot is a different story completely debugging crush reports of So haven't gone through. That in us was having seen the sort of attempts sort of pulling in pushing us towards cross. Platform frameworks cottam. Okafor's was immediately. You know the caught cartoon. The cartoon obviously was an advantage a positive from my perspective but more generally i think it was a sane approach it was targeting shared logic target. Had kind of a mechanism in place where you could sort of. This is critical. You could incrementally adopted you know you start putting in for some small area. And i think that generally by today's still is that you start doing that in you take some particular business. Logic may be may be remote. Api endpoint access or so forth and then graduated up from there. And you know there's another kind of a discussion point around how you socialize that how you get in particular iowa's developers interested in an accepting of the but it's the topic himself but certainly certainly from that perspective. At least i think it's very important. Start small and and as the key thing about the type forums. It appealed point was that it had that capability that it it was lended itself to that sort of adoption. Yes so so just to kind of to recap your point. You feel that the that the main difference between cartland multi platform and these other cross platform. Toolkits is is what exactly that you can adopt them. Incrementally that you that you stay away from From what part would you say is kind of the most interesting here. This quite a few different aspects. I think cutting across different areas You know on one hand. I think If you've been involved in from at all you're very kevin gallagher and sort of pre advocates in and you know of this for some time and i think he did. He described it as a sort of perspective risk management as well. You know you're trying to you're trying to avoid locking out upsetting kita one key differentiator. A there's a. There's a number of them. I think but won't different areas. If you decide to use react native reuse flutter or use a variety of other coaches that have been there over. The years is a song that amount of of and and you know it's an all or nothing sort of approaching the with with commodity farm and it allows you to manage. You know you. Can you can sort of put in graduate. Start using it. Then the flip side of that is this touches on a couple of areas obviously but folks on sheriff business logic as ios an underdeveloped. I wanna use the best of breed technologies ideas get companies. That can when i on on iowa. Sony's combine that we have to frame of their likewise android. Cauchon coatings influence worth and that. That's the key difference here. You know that focus that you know it. I think touches on another area. I think we've got sort of a certain level of maturity culture monte platform where i think a good sign some regards that we've gone beyond okay. This is proof of concept What's it about renown sort of digging deeper into so architectures and different approaches. You can use. And i think this is is little bit as sort of a simplistic way sometimes mentioned quotas just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do something so i think we've be careful. You know it is. Its main sort of setting point is is as focused on shared logic. I see a lot of discussions pushing further up the stack. You know the view model and potentially you you hear in the context composed nowadays. of course. why can't we to compose. and. I think there's a danger to honest. Econ generally too much of a dangerous on too far up and then it just becomes another spot framework. I think our approach in general
Is This Ancient Biblical Forgery Actually Real?
"So close to a century and a half ago. A man named moses wilhelm shapira found fifteen manuscript fragments in a cave near the dead sea. They were written in an ancient hebrew script and contained. What shapiro claimed was the original book of deuteronomy blitz despite interest from the british museum to the tune of a million pounds. The manuscripts were found to be forged. Shapiro was disgraced and the documents disappeared but now a scholar named don dershowitz is questioning. If those documents might have been real all along so while the british museum was examining the manuscript fragments for authenticity themselves. Back in the nineteen th century. A few of the fragments were also on display to the public already attracting tons of visitors. The news of the possibly oldest ever discovered biblical manuscript had made headlines around the world. While awaiting the museum's official decree of authenticity. Someone else decided to take matters into their own hands. Charles simone clermont. Is you know who the times describes as a swashbuckling french archaeologist and longtime nemesis of shapiro's end quote examined the fragments for a few minutes and immediately went to the press to say that they were fake. The risk he played on his cursory examination paid off when the british museum experts agreed. Shapiro was humiliated by this and ended up. Tragically dying by suicide a few months later. The documents were sold at auction for a fraction of what they were originally expected to sell for. And most people soon forgot about the whole thing now. Dershowitz from the university of potsdam germany has published a new paper and companion book making the case that the manuscript was real all along quoting the new york times but dershowitz makes an even more dramatic claim the text which he is reconstructed from nineteenth century transcriptions and drawings is not a reworking of deuteronomy. He argues but a precursor to its dating to the period of the first temple before the babylonian exile that would make it the oldest biblical manuscript by far and an unprecedented window into the origins and evolution of the bible and biblical religion dershowitz. His research closely guarded until now has yet to get broad. Scrutiny scholars previewed his findings at a closed-door seminar at harvard in two thousand nineteen are divided. A taste of fierce debates likely to come but of dershowitz is correct. Some experts say it will be the most consequential bible related discovery since the dead sea scrolls in nineteen forty seven and quotes the times. Sagely points out that it's much tougher to prove something authentic than it is to prove. It's fake but there's an additional hurdle to be jumped. In this case the physical fragments themselves may no longer exist so back in eighteen eighty three there was a mad rush at the time to find biblical artifacts that would prove or disprove various points of contention emerging in biblical scholarship moseley around the documentary hypothesis. The idea that the first five books of the bible or the pentateuch were actually written by various authors. Not just one traditionally thought to be moses. It was in this climate of aggressive archaeology that shapiro. I established himself as an antiquities dealer in jerusalem and during which time he and clermont no became enemies. After camacho correctly denounced a collection of pottery. That shapira had sold to the german government. It's also important to note that shapiro was a convert to christianity having been raised jewish in russia so he was viewed with some skepticism from the other biblical scholars and archaeologists and also faced intense antisemitism after the deuteronomy manuscript was denounced. Fast forward to now. Dershowitz says one of the main reasons he thinks the fragments could have been real is because their contents differs quite a bit from the deuteronomy in the bible and many of those differences lineup with discoveries that were only made when the dead sea scrolls were found in nineteen forty seven sixty four years. After chapitoulas discovery of the fragments dershowitz also investigated. Some of shapiro's personal notes archived at the berlin state library and found three. Handwritten pages of shapiro trying to decipher the fragments. Filled with question marks and transcription errors. Dershowitz said quote if he forged them or was part of a conspiracy. It makes no sense that he'd be sitting there trying to guess what the text is and making mistakes while he did it end quote while some scholars of the evolution of biblical text or undershoots side cautiously believing the deuteronomy fragments may be genuine. Most pig refers people who study inscriptions are the ones that usually authenticate documents. Most of them aren't convinced they say the original fragments bear the hallmarks of modern forgery. That they agree with the notes made by the experts who examined them at the time and since no one has the fragments to examine physically now. It's a closed case and as for the content being impressions christopher rolston leading pig refer at george washington university said quote. Forgers are pretty clever with regard to content and they've been very clever for twenty five hundred years and quotes despite dershowitz his published paper and companion book. The jury is still out and who knows if it will ever truly be born ounce. It would have some pretty huge complications. If it does due to some of its key differences for example. It's missing all of the laws of the deuteronomy were familiar with in the bible. Ones upon which traditions and entire libraries have been founded. It would also bolster the theory that are tons more stories and traditions out there than just the ones that have been preserved in the hebrew bible.

You actually remember it better. It also went into a chronological file of Eleanor's that starts in 18 84, but also even earlier.

Orders really fascinating and exciting. Yeah, and you are based in Australia, and it's always interesting to hear how voices kind of used around the world. What would you say is the current usage and perception of technology in Australia from a consumer and a business perspective I moved from consumer perspective Britain Containment Westbank. Did smart speaker adoption employed an Australia last March and that suggested that we head. Head around thirty percent adoption of smart speakers, which is wasn't time faster than our pads in the US and Europe. Like most other technologies quick to adopt, but it's been interesting because we haven't had a lot of proper usage figures come out so over this kind of past Mumbo true, of Covid nineteen with been getting some quite interesting usage stats come out from the broadcasting radio. Companies, so Santa Crossover Stereo who are major radio company here, the waitress and WanNa quit and December. They stated that the head a million listens to the news on demand, smart speaker, so that was a the trees that had been live and match they put add another series of statistics and civic about head of four, hundred, Sixty, eight thousand listens just much, and that also saying a massive spike in the middle on demand listening, and that twenty percent of that was coming bus, not speakers, so it's been amazing in I. Guess Exciting in this bleak time to say. Say. That people are spending more time on this month's Bacon in interacting with boys and I think maybe that's to do with working from home as well because a huge proportion of zero working from home, so having access to in having a little bit more time to experiment, and do you think that businesses are using it equally as much businesses? I think in Australia are traditionally quite conservative when it comes to new technology, so we've seen that innovative, which has been really exciting, but I would say that the majority of businesses have kind of they wanna see. See what they can to the doing, so it has been interesting over the past couple of months to save their is a greater equitize innovation, so we've been a bit busier speaking to new businesses that we haven't spoken to before and also reopening doors that were closed so businesses a really really busy in that run a fe, or that really quiet, and thus struggling, so the businesses who are really busy looking in a bit of ways to help service customers, so that's where invoice cheaper energy zero and you're your company, Acura. We last spoke before has. Has a really interesting beginning. Can you share the story of how the company started? And how it's evolved with the type of work, it does now yes. Oh, cure! Edgeley started off in the inclusion and accessibility space offender Ray guy, sit out on a mission to help blend fringe years the intimate in doing so he he looked at what was company at currently available in the mock, and realized that it was really kind of clunky and difficult two years these screenwriters that read one time on the screen and you push a button to rate each word and. Right decided that he could do something Columbia he's come from. Big Tick background, and so he decided to not only voted a toe that could scrape websites and visualize what was on the screen. He also figured out a way to translate and my accessible using voids, and so that was before Amazon launch here with Alexa exam before Google launched Google assistant so before those technologies were available even in Australia.

That was a fun one to start with the wind now exploring some more kind of date end utilitarian experiences with them, so that's a really neat project. The another Clinton has been quite active at the moment is the State Library of Queensland. And I think that one's interesting from the perspective of a lot of content sitting in the archives search as you can imagine a State Library I've got content going back to the first settlers in Australia, so the website is used a lot of people who had doing things, lack research, papers, or looking for the ancestry or finding resources for project, so whatever it is so I've got amazing content just sitting buried getting dusty these archives, and so we working with into surface that continent and bring it to life.

Will artificial scarcity of library e-books push sales?
"Ninety four percent of libraries offer evokes borrowers but now Macmillan one of the five five biggest book publishers in the. US says it's going to limit each library to just one copy for the first eight weeks after publication so get ready for longer waits to borrow awesome libraries and their users a protesting the move when I last checked nearly two hundred thousand people had signed an online petition against it. Just men west is a librarian in Vermont. She says the move is reflective of a lot of upheaval in the book. World Right now I think publishers are wondering what to do about their revenue model As more and more people go many more different places for content than just the Bookstore Amazon encourages them to lower their prices and lower their prices. Because they're kind of the eight eight hundred pound gorilla in this whole thing and so they're looking at ways. They can serve recoup some of the money they lose and in many ways some publishers. Look at libraries if we're sort of taking money from them by lending the books instead of making people buy them and so it McMillan is basically taking a risk that if they enforce this artificial scarcity by not letting libraries lend their books more people will gotten by their books. Macmillan CEO has said in interviews that the e book marketplace's kind of like that for motion pictures in the new releases. Have all this excitement around them for the first few weeks. And that's when they make most money through sales and they need that money to reinvest in new e books on new authors and illustrators in the whole ecosystem isn't that fair Libraries are willing to pay for these books. I don't understand why they are looking to libraries and saying oh well we know you want to buy dozens if not hundreds of copies of these books right after they come out but instead we think we're going to put the squeeze he's on your patrons and in fact one of our sources of free advertising now that there's fewer bookstores and not take your money in order to try to make it this other way way. Can you suggest a change. That would keep everybody happy. That would give libraries enough copies of the books but also keep publishers happy. I don't understand what the problem was originally sell. L. Books to libraries they are free advertising. McMillan is trying to get patrons to buy books from them directly and I actually number one. Don't think it's GonNa work out that way for them. And number two think it puts a squeeze specifically on more disadvantage patrons in libraries people. The WHO maybe can't read a print book for various reasons. Those people are not necessarily going to be the people that are going to go and purchase those books and so it's really doing is denying certain readerships access to their books. Who would otherwise be happy to have them through the library? Who would be happy to pay for them? And just give us tonight. Era of how important a publisher Macmillan is. I mean how much will patrons of a lab refill this change. Well it's GonNa be really interesting right now. Libraries are just kind of I'm sitting in waiting this thing The embargo basically went into effect. A week ago Some major library systems can county notably in Washington state has decided added to just not purchase McMillan books. Because they're grumpy about this and I don't blame them but we're not sure. I think if you asked most patrons you know what does McMillan publish us who their authors. They wouldn't necessarily know and it puts libraries in this really awkward position of having to explain this relatively complicated situation about the marketplace to patrons who really just want a good book. I'm hoping libraries can react especially by buying more print materials. But we're really not sure how it's going to affect affect readership and attitude towards Macmillan or the other publishers or e books genuinely until we see how this plays out. Do you think there's a chance here that Macmillan might end up backpedaling on this. I do I think it's entirely possible Sergeant the CEO of Macmillan was recently speaking at a meeting of the heads of state libraries. OBREE's like every state has a state library or department of Libraries within the state and the heads of those state. Libraries are kind of grumpy about this too. I mean really what it's about is access right. And this withholding access from the public in a general sense so he kinda trotted out his old. Like this. Why it's a better deal and we're totally trying to help libraries and You know that first copy we let you have is cheap. And it doesn't expire so that's super cool like restating his statement statement and I think the state librarians in many cases weren't having it they pushed back in their kind of friendly mannerly way and sergeant did kind of open the door for. We'll maybe this isn't the right way to do things which is not anything we've heard him say previously. And so I see that as kind for a ray of hope. They basically Based this embargo on kind of an experiment they did with one of their imprints which was tore books. They tried to smaller. Smaller embargo is kind of a test but tore books also publishes a lot of science fiction. Fantasy they have a rabid fan base. Who may be would purchase those books out if they couldn't borrow them at the library but realistically I don't think that's GonNa Happen for the rest of Macmillan's front list and so I think what we're hoping is this? Also also embargo experiment will not go the way they want and maybe they can sort of dial it back to having something. That's more in line with the way other. Publishers appear to be making this happen and also making it work for them from a business perspective. So it'll work for us from a library

I wanna give credit. This thing doesn't read like a good book. You know, it is dry. It is very tech buzz. You said there's a lot of things that the redacted so reading between lines it, very difficult. So I'm actually just so impressed by by. So there is. At the at the beginning. They go through all the different technical stuff. Like everybody has been sworn in. Everybody has all their rights read to them. And they go through all that different shit, the levels of charges what the charges are going to be than they actually get into the character of Matt goal. Steam, this is the first line first paragraph that they talk about captain Goldstein. And they said they introduce it by saying that he came in for a job interview with the CIA. So that's the first thing they say, and then it goes on catha ghosting began to admit several possible violations which caused concern captain goals related that he violated general order number one when he and his team would occasionally drink Johnnie Walker while the -ployed cats goals dean did not provide the month that he drank alcohol while the -ployed or with whom he drink captain go see related several times he drank while in uniform overseas to me. It's a murder charge. And the first thing that you're saying is this dude jank Johnny Walker. He's a bucket devil. That is the most army military shit of all time. Well, the rationale the rationale being if he's willing Jake air tries to tell you the Schnell it may be so, but I. Kinds saying. If you're just come if he's willing to break that what else is he willing to do something as simple as don't drink alcohol. How can we expect that he was gonna follow something that has has much that essential equivalency because you break the unit? Everybody has broken some form of military rule. So because your uniform is fucked up and you wear your rank insignia backwards. That means that also you have the propensity commit murder, that's such a false equivalency saying, you have the propensity to commit murder, but what they're trying to think. That's the thing. We'll have to try to when you're talking about a murder case that has such severe ramifications. You have to pay the entire picture, and yes, while I agree that is ridiculous to make the leap from. He drank alcohol while deployed, so he must be able to someone. I'm sorry only because they're drawing. Yeah. Distinction there. I I don't don't think. think. To make. I think they're trying to like set the tone and show small examples that build up to a bigger thing. I don't think that's necessarily exactly what they were saying, oh, he drank Susan murderer. But like I get why they would include that. I do. I think it's that crazy quote. I think it's funny. I'm it's interesting that they lead with that. I'll say that. Yeah. That's I mean to include it somewhere the report, but that be your opening statement. I mean, like if what was who's who's taught mom, what's your fucking name? Casey, Anthony, Casey, Anthony is accused of murdering your kid, and she also we want, you know, as unpaid library fines like. Same type of thing.

"Programs for adults on computer classes and job skills training. Is miss startups. We do all of this great work for our community members. And at the same time, we counteract it by charging fines and fees of our patrons. Today in lacrosse, ten thousand of our users are unable to check out library materials because of fines and fees. If we narrow in on our neighborhoods experiencing the most poverty, those were eighty two percent of the student body is considered economically disadvantaged. The number rises to twenty three percent of the neighborhood. And these are local numbers, it's true. But they hold true nationwide. In libraries across the country that charged fines, the poorest neighborhoods have the most number of people blocked from us. In fact, the Colorado state library was so worried about this. They published a white paper. And they stated unequivocally that it's the fear of fines that keeps poor families out of libraries. A colleague of mine took a ride in a lift in Atlanta last year. And he started chatting with his driver about libraries as we do. And she told him she grew up visiting her local library, she loved it. But now that she's apparent with three children of her own. There's no way she would allow them to get a library card because of the strict deadlines, libraries, impose she said, it would be like another credit card that I can't pay. Meanwhile, when other libraries have experimented with eliminating fines like one in San Rafael that took away children's find they had one hundred and twenty six percent increase in child card applications within the first few months when people aren't afraid of the fines, they might accrue. They line up to access what we have to offer. So what are we telling people, then we have these two dispirit ideas on the one hand, we're champions of democracy, and we claim that we are there. So that every citizen can educate themselves. We're advocates for the power early literacy has to reduce that achievement gap and eliminate the word cap. We tell people we're here to help you. On the other hand, if you're struggling financially, and you make a mistake. The kind of mistake that anyone in this room could make your tote bag that belongs to the library sits by your back door for a couple of weeks longer than it. Should you lose a CD? You spill your coffee on a book. Suddenly, we're not here for you so much anymore because if that happens we're going to make you pay for it. And if you can't pay for it. I have been a librarian for a lot of years and in the past few years, I myself have paid over five hundred dollars in late lines. Now, you might wonder why I mean, I'm there every day. And I certainly know how the system works, but like all of our friends at the library. I am busy. I lose track of things. My house is sometimes messy, and I have lost a DVD or two under the sofa. And I have been fortunate enough to be able to pay that five hundred dollars over the last several years, if not happily at least had the means to do it. So is that fair and equitable service? If some of us can pay our fines and continue to operate as we always have and others of us make one mistake and no longer are. Welcome back. It's simply not. Now, why would we continue to operate under a model that hurts our most vulnerable patrons, the most there are reasons there are reasons like responsibility, there are some libraries that really feel that it's our job to teach people responsibility. And they haven't figured out that there might be ways to do that. Don't equate two dollars. There's also this idea that we share the resources collectively in a community..
