The team will answer the questions during the Q&A session live stream;
If some questions remain unanswered during the session, we will respond to them via Twitter;
During the session we will give special priority to frequent questions.
Future Features kit rules: The purpose of this survey is to gather the preferences and needs for language features from the community. You can have your say on features you want to see the most in some future versions of Kotlin. Please note it’s more likely that you won’t see those features in v1.2, but we will take your opinion into account when prioritizing our work. The Kotlin Future Feature kit includes 20 cards with the names and descriptions of features, and stickers for bidding;
The feature cards should be put on a board (or wall);
Every attendee gets 3 (three) stickers that she/he can distribute freely among features: bid on up to three different features, or put two or even three bids on a single feature;
Attendees can read through the descriptions on the cards to learn about the features, and then proceed to bidding as described above;Make a picture of the result;
