Kotlin 1.1 Event Report

Alina Dolgikh

The Kotlin 1.1 release was warmly met by the community. To demonstrate the new features in Kotlin 1.1, JetBrains offered an online event. All those interested were able to watch a live stream of Andrey Breslav’s demo presentation and get their questions answered during a Q&A session.

This motivated many local communities to meet up: more than 30 user groups hosted events in 21 countries.

You can find the full list of the events at the Kotlin community web page. Over 3000 people joined the broadcast on the day of the event.

The recording of the demo presentation and the Q&A is available on YouTube:

Kotlin 1.1 Event Feedback

If you watched the live stream, we want to know what you think! Please share your feedback by completing this form. It should only take about 7-10 minutes. Your input is very important in helping us improve all future Kotlin events.

Kotlin Future Features Survey

We also offered all communities to make an impact on Kotlin future. Event organizers received survey kits and event participants could have a say on the most expected features in an off-line mode. The survey gained much attention, and we’ve now placed it online to listen to the wider community. Now you can have your say on the Kotlin future online!

Please note it’s more likely that you won’t see those features in v1.2, but we will take your opinion into account when prioritizing our work.
