Advanced multi-platform dependency injection with Kotlin

Dependency Injection is a complicated topic, and when used in a project that compiles to multiple targets through different compilers & runtimes, it can lead to serious headaches. However, the Inversion of Control pattern brings a lot of architecture features and safety.

In this talk, we will see how to use all the power of Kodein-DI, a popular dependency injection library that works everywhere Kotlin can compile to, in a mobile multi-platform project targeting Android, iOS and the mobile Web.

We will start by using the dependency injection pattern to abstract and test the behavior of multi-platform business modules. We will then see how to debug common dependency management errors.

Finally, we will enhance our common code using advanced features of Kodein-DI such as set bindings, lazy access, context, and scopes.
