Dr Thomas Wuerthinger & GraalVM: Run programs fast, economical & polyglot meetup in Brisbane

11 February, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm AEDT


We have Dr. Thomas Wuerthinger – founder of GraalVM visiting Australia in February and we have been able to get him to the meetup.

The GraalVM project enhances the Java ecosystem with an integrated, polyglot, high-performance execution environment for dynamic, static, and native languages. GraalVM supports Java, Scala, Kotlin, Groovy, and other JVM-based languages. At the same time, it can run the dynamic scripting languages JavaScript including Node.js, Ruby, R, and Python.

Balancing the main performance indicators peak throughput, startup time, memory footprint, maximum latency, and packaging size is key for optimizing your application. GraalVM offers a just-in-time (JIT) and ahead-of-time (AOT) execution mode with different trade-offs on these metrics.

This session will show how to get the most out of GraalVM for the metrics you care about! It will also cover the unique polyglot capabilities of GraalVM with uniform tooling and interoperability model for all GraalVM supported languages.

Thomas’s profile can be viewed here – https://labs.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=LABS:bio:0:137
