Kotlin, meet gRPC

As developers work to modernize applications, they need foundational tools that are simple and scalable. gRPC is a high-performance, open-source, universal RPC framework originally developed at Google that developers are adopting in tremendous numbers, helping them connect services more easily and reliably. Paired with Kotlin, the second most popular JVM-based programming language in the world, developers can build everything from mobile apps to cloud microservices. To help, we’ve open-sourced gRPC Kotlin for the JVM, allowing you to use gRPC with your Kotlin projects.

For the full announcement, including how to deploy gRPC Kotlin services on Cloud Run, see the Google Cloud blog, Kotlin, meet gRPC: a new open-source project for modern apps.
