Join Gradle at KotlinConf 2017

Kotlin is the #1 rising Gradle “related topic” according to Google Trends. We want to improve user experience developing Kotlin applications with Gradle, and that requires great guides — but we need your help! Tell us which unwritten Kotlin Gradle guide you think would be most useful, and you’ll have a chance to get a free ticket to KotlinConf! See instructions below.

KotlinConf 2-3 Nov 2017, San Francisco, Pier 27

We are proud to be a silver partner for KotlinConf, which is just 3 weeks away! Hans Dockter will be presenting Building Kotlin Applications at Scale and some of the Gradle Kotlin DSL team will be on-site to talk Kotlin with you.

About the KotlinConf 2017 ticket raffle

We are giving away 2 standard tickets to the conference. You’ll be responsible for getting to the conference, so please don’t accept a ticket if you cannot attend.

All you need to do is file an issue on the gradle/guides GitHub repo with a unique and useful suggestion for a Gradle guide around building Kotlin with Gradle. For inspiration, you can check out the proposal for the Building Kotlin JVM Libraries guide, which was published recently.

We’d be happy to get lots of good ideas from you, but we’ll enter your name once. Winners will be chosen at random on Monday, October 16th. We’ll contact you if you’ve been selected, and you’ll have 3 days to confirm you can attend.

If you’re interested in contributing to the Kotlin/Gradle community, just adding 👍 s on ideas you think would be good is helpful, but even more so submitting a PR with a sample or typo fix is most welcome. Remember the goal: make Kotlin development awesome for everyone!

Good luck! We hope to see you at KotlinConf!
