    Is it possible to host an event specific to our organisation?

      Yes, it’s possible. You’re welcome to organize an event at your organization and submit it

    I’d like to hold a viewing event after work (Eastern Standard Time), but the sessions will be long over by then.

    I received an email today from JetBrains that says,
    “Join the broadcast on the kotlinconf.com home page at any time.”

    Will the recorded sessions be available on the home page the same day, or is “any time” just an invitation to join a live broadcast? (Which is quite generous already, thanks!)

      Hi Andy, thanks for your question. You’re welcome to watch everything live on Dec 5-6, during the KotlinConf schedule. The recording will then become available right away as well, so alternatively you can hold your event at any time after the broadcast. It will not be a live stream, but the recorded keynote and sessions will be available to watch. Please note that you can get support for your event if it happens not later than March 5, 2020.

    Hello Alina,

    We are planning to organize live streaming of all 2 days of KotlinConf 2019 Global in our company offices for our employees and people from local IT comminities as well. And to inform the people we are thinking to post events on Timepad.

    So is it required to submit that through the form above? We actually don’t need some specific support unless you have any thoughts on some nice gifts/merch for participants 🙂

      Hello Alexey,

      brilliant, please do! We will be in touch with you about the support (and shipping some swag your way). We will also add your event to the map on kotlinconf.com, so people in your area can learn about it and join in.
      It is great to hear about your event, we’re looking forward to you joining in!
