This is not the Java we used to know. It's fast as lightning, light as a feather, knows all languages! How is that possible? We are speaking about GraalVM, the (not so new) open source virtual machine that is revolutionizing the way we run applications, small and big, based on the Java platform and ecosystem.
The session will start with a short introduction to GraalVM architecture and its main characteristics. After the introduction, the session will focus on the differences of JIT vs AOT compilation, and the generation of native images, and a recommended workflow to work with native images and containers.
The presentation focuses on live coding and demoing the main features and the native image workflow, and hence people attending should expect fewer slides and lots of code and commands.
