Kotlin Roadmap: Upcoming Features

In this talk, we’ll discuss what the Kotlin team is working on, the priorities we have, and the additions you can expect in the language.

The JVM platform is evolving, and Kotlin is keeping up with the new features as they become available. This includes the features introduced by the upcoming Project Valhalla and JVM support for sealed classes and records. In this talk, we’ll discuss how these changes affect Kotlin as a language, and how the Kotlin team finds a balance between drawing on the power of the new JVM versions, supporting the same functionality in older versions, and providing a smooth transition. We'll also talk about how you, the community, can influence the design and evolution of the language!
