Are you looking to launch your own Kotlin course? We are excited to equip you with the necessary tools! Join us for a special livestream for Kotlin educators on Jun 21, 2023 at 16:00 UTC!
Our guest, Anastasia Birillo, is a JetBrains researcher, Kotlin developer and instructor, an active member of the Kotlin community, and one of the authors of the ‘Programming in Kotlin’ course materials. Anastasia is teaching this course at Constructor University in Bremen, Germany and Neapolis University Pafos, Cyprus. During this livestream, Anastasia will share her teaching experience and the new course materials, designed specifically for Kotlin educators and available for free. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions and get them answered during the Q&A part of the livestream.
The ‘Programming in Kotlin’ course materials include:
Downloadable slides on the core concepts of Kotlin:
- Introduction to Kotlin
- Object-oriented programming
- Build systems
- Functional programming
- JVM + the Kotlin compiler
- Parallel and concurrent programming
- Asynchronous programming
Assessment resources for educators:
- Homework assignments
The course covers core topics such as data types, variables and control flow, functions, object-oriented programming, exception handling, collections and generics, lambdas, and higher-order functions. It also covers significant features of Kotlin, including null safety, extension functions, and coroutines. At the end of the course students will study build systems, using Gradle as an example, as well as explore compilation techniques and how the Kotlin K2 compiler works.
This is a comprehensive toolkit for teaching Kotlin and it can be easily customized to align with specific educational needs.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to access these course materials and launch your very own Kotlin course. Mark your calendars and join us for the livestream!

Results of Google Summer of Code With Kotlin
2023 marked Kotlin's first-ever participation in Google Summer of Code (GSoC), a global online program focused on bringing new contributors into open-source development. Contributors worked on 12-week programming projects with the Kotlin Foundation under the guidance of mentors from JetBrains, Google, and Gradle, and gained experience on real-world projects. We would like to share the results achieved during GSoC 2023.
