I am just curious (learning what Kotlin should and should not be used for).
I wanted to hear opinions of Kotlin Native candidate target applications will include.
I understand it will include low end devices like IoT, iOS devices, robots, etc. As I read it - Kotlin Native will not target systems programming tasks (OS and DBMS kernels) and will not target graphically intensive gaming, leaving this all to C++, Rust, Go, C, etc.
Traditionally C++ has been used for time critical apps like HFT (High Frequency Trading) and other time and performance critical low latency applications - which are neither systems programming nor gaming. Basically anywhere where virtual machines like JVM, .Net with their automatic garbage collection and JIT overheads were not acceptable - C++ won “by default”.
Hence my question of whether Kotlin Native will address/target the performance critical low latency applications needs where C++ is currently used.
