The State of Kotlin

Q1 2022 Edition

In 2021 Kotlin turned 10 and the team delivered 2 major releases (1.5.0 and 1.6.0) and a few minors. The main themes of those releases were Java interoperability and consistency of the language features. Meanwhile, Kotlin/JS has been promoted to Beta and KMM is on its path to reaching Beta status as well. However, one long-running project in Kotlin is the development of the new compiler, K2, which should set a solid foundation for the language and the ecosystem for the years ahead.

This session is an overview of the latest developments in Kotlin: the language, tools, compiler, and the ecosystem around it. We're also going to take a look at Kotlin's roadmap to see where are we heading. Come and learn what's new and exciting!
