I heard from a level 5 engineer at Google today “The use of reactive programming is ill-advised in Android development because of known issues that it generates in the area of lifecycle complications/potential leaks. Also, Kotlin is supported as a first class language largely as a shorthand for those who prefer it when writing third-party applications” This is his argument on why we should move our application to framework and use java/native code only. @jw is this the reason why we wont be seeing Kotlin support in AOSP anytime in the future?

was that person expressing their own opinion or Google’s?
Does this person only write backend code?😂 That has to be the funniest thing I've heard in a while 😂
What lifecycle issues are that supposed to be which don't appear without reactive programming (and are not simply unnoticed/ignored like usual)?
What’s a level 5 senior architect?

Looks like it means he’s a senior software engineer (L5) https://www.quora.com/What-are-the-different-levels-of-software-engineers-at-Google
