At Google I/O 2019 we announced that Android development will become increasingly Kotlin-first. Together with JetBrains, we also launched Kotlin/Everywhere - a global series of community led events focusing on the potential of using Kotlin everywhere; on Android, servers, web front-end and other platforms.

Kotlin/Everywhere events took place from May through December and we want to thank everyone for getting involved

๐Ÿ‘จ‍๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿ’ป30,000+ developers participated in-person at Kotlin/Everywhere events

๐ŸŽฅ๐Ÿฟ200,000 views of live-streams and event recordings like Kotlin/Everywhere Bengaluru, Minsk, Chicago, Buenos Aires and more.

๐Ÿ“… 500+ events: from short evening meetups, half-day sessions, and full day events, to Kotlin/Everywhere tracks at larger events like DevFests, or even StudyJams that spanned several weeks.

๐ŸŽค~30 speakers from Google and JetBrains gave ~70 talks at events around the world.

๐ŸŒŽ 85+ countries/regions: from United States to Chile, Kenya, Greece, Taiwan, New Zealand

๐Ÿ’ป Many of the resources used or created for Kotlin/Everywhere by Google and JetBrains are available online:

General Kotlin:

Multi-platform Kotlin:

We’re grateful for this engagement with Kotlin from communities around the world, as well as for all the organisers, speakers and attendees who made these events possible! To participate in more Kotlin events, check out JetBrains’ KotlinConf’19 Global initiative, happening through March 2020.

With all of the resources available, there’s never been a better time to adopt Kotlin… Everywhere!
