With Kotlin growing in popularity, it's about time we start looking at Kotlin as a language that has superpowers.
When we talk about backend technologies, we have a lot of languages/frameworks like Go, Java, Python, etc.
But when we talk about Kotlin as a backend language, it might raise a lot of eyebrows
But let me try to convince you that Kotlin is definitely a good choice for Backend! We will talk about Ktor (A framework for Kotlin) to build a fast backend that can be re-used on your client side.

We will cover,
1. Setup Backend
2. Basics
3. Power of coroutines
4. Architecture of Ktor
5. Production grade requirement
6. Testing
7. Deployment
