Advent of Code in Kotlin: Celebrating Our Participants and Their Solutions
A big thank you goes out to everyone who joined us for Advent of Code in Kotlin last year! We’re thrilled that JetBrains was a part of this yearly tradition once again as one of the Advent of Code sponsors.
From December 1 through 12, we shared daily livestreams of puzzle solutions presented by our host Sebastian Aigner and his fantastic guests. If you missed any of the action, you can watch the recordings on our YouTube playlist. Dive into Kotlin discussions, learn something new, and enjoy the good vibes:
Last year, we again threw the challenge to the community, inviting you all to solve puzzles using Kotlin – and the response was phenomenal!
Here’s a quick recap:
- 1,400 repositories were labeled with the “aoc-2023-in-kotlin” topic and were therefore included in the challenge.
- We featured a total of 12 guests on our 12 daily livestreams.
We invited everyone to join one of our leaderboards and start solving the Advent of Code puzzles in Kotlin. Now, we’d like to take a moment to congratulate our 15 standout winners, who will soon be receiving some exclusive prizes!
Here are the top five performers from the combined Kotlin leaderboards, which had a total of 1,320 participants:
These five winners were selected randomly from the 1,400 repositories:
And here are our community stars:
A massive round of applause to all our participants and winners, and a special thank you to Eric Wastl and the entire Advent of Code organizational team!
We hope you had fun, and we’re looking forward to seeing you all for the next edition of Advent of Code in Kotlin! Meanwhile, check out the following links and keep exploring the language:

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.
