I hope your new year is off to a great start! Instead of doing a usual round-up of my favorite news and articles from the past week or two, I thought it’d be fun to look back at 2017 at some of the amazing milestones that Kotlin has achieved over the past year. Let’s dive in!

Kotlin’s Achievements in 2017

Wow! That’s a lot. With all of this activity, we saw the language jump ranks from 89 to 39 year-over-year in the TIOBE index. Congratulations to the JetBrains team and to the Kotlin community for a fantastic year!

Did I miss anything?

I’m sure I did! There’s been so much that happened with Kotlin over the past year that I probably missed some milestones. If you’ve got some to share, feel free to add them to the comments section below!
