About the Kotlin 1.4 Online Event

The Kotlin 1.4 Online Event took place on October 12–15, 2020. Over 23,000 people from 69 countries joined the live stream to watch the talks, chat with the Kotlin community, and pose questions for the speakers. We received 2090 applications for the virtual booth and more than 5000 submissions in the QuizQuest.

Thanks a million to everyone who joined and filled those four days with knowledge, attention, and support for each other, including all of our speakers, organizers, guests, and partners!

We particularly want to thank those who sent us videos for our community compilation. It is a true gem from our event! Enjoy watching:
