On July 19, 2011, at the JVM Language Summit, JetBrains announced Kotlin – a new statically typed programming language for the JVM. So, it has been here for almost 10 years. Ever since its conception in 2011, it’s been changing the way we work at JetBrains and beyond. None of the strides we’ve taken would have been possible without the Kotlin community.
So, let’s get nostalgic! We’d love to hear how Kotlin has impacted your life, or any special memories you have of it.
Share your story with the hashtag #10yearsofKotlin on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or LinkedIn. Feel free to use images or videos if you have any. We will post the best stories on a special web page and include them in a documentary. You may even win some special swag!
Stay tuned, the 10 year anniversary celebration is coming!
