Announcing KotlinConf

Over the past year we have seen significant growth in Kotlin adoption, represented not only by the lines of Kotlin code on GitHub (8M new lines of code since 1.0 release) but also by the numerous companies that have been reaching out to us about their usage, the number of talks being presented by community members at conferences, the increase in new frameworks and libraries, new user groups and meet-ups, as well as community events

To thank the wonderful Kotlin community, and to also share the most exciting things happening in Kotlin, we’re happy to announce KotlinConf, a two-day event taking place in San Francisco, November 2017.


We’ll be opening up registration soon with early-bird tickets, so make sure you sign-up for updates.

Call for Papers now open

We have keynotes lined up by Andrey Breslav and Erik Meijer, and talks by some other speakers that we’ll be announcing shortly. But this is a community event and we want you, as members of the Kotlin community to also participate in the conference. As such, there is an open Call for Papers where you can submit talks on things you’ve been doing with Kotlin and would like to share. While there is no rush, don’t delay because the call ends on the 1st of May 2017. 

If you have any questions regarding the conference, please send an email to You can also ask questions on #kotlinconf on Slack. For sponsorship enquires, please email

2017 is going to be an exciting year for Kotlin and we hope to celebrate it with you in November!

    Why are these things always in the states? Jetbrains is a European country. The amount of development in Europe vs The States is broadly equal if not bigger in Europe.

    • Louis CAD says:

      Probably because San Francisco is closer to tech giants, and Jetbrains wants it’s (wonderful) language to be adopted by folks in the Silicon Valley. The next Kotlin Conf may be elsewhere, we’ll see.

  2. Isaac says:

    Should the Kotlin Slack be open? It says that I need a email address to register.

  3. Ariel Alvarez says:

    The submit for the sign up for updates yields an error:

    XMLHttpRequest cannot load The request was redirected to a URL (‘about:blank’) which has a disallowed scheme for cross-origin requests.

    What level of detail or you looking for in session descriptions?
