Programming Language Platform Growth: Table Stakes or Deal Makes?

This talk draws from Ed's 25 years of professional programming experience, spanning many languages, operating systems, and platforms, to survey what it takes to make a programming language platform successful in terms of widespread use. Ed will look at Java, Python, Node, Go, and Ruby and evaluate the ingredients that brought each one its own form of success. Finally, Ed will draw some lessons that apply to anyone trying to grow their computing platform, because, at some level, we are all in the platform business.

Graal VM

GraalVM ist eine universelle Virtuelle Machine für JVM-basierte Sprachen wie Java, die aber auch JavaScript, Python, Ruby, R, sowie LLVM-basierte Sprachen wie C, C++, oder Fortran ausführen kann. GraalVM integriert all diese in einer VM und erlaubt es, in diesen Sprachen geschriebene Applikationen auf einer Plattform auszuführen und Daten hochperformant austauschen zu lassen. GraalVM kann eigenständig als Java VM betrieben werden oder in andere Systeme wie Node.js, die Oracle DB oder MySQL integriert werden.
