Talk #2: "Tackling GraalVM's native-image tooling with Scala" by Łukasz Biały

Abstract
Oracle's GraalVM brings a lot of new and exciting possibilities for JVM developers. One of them is the capability to compile Scala applications to static binaries. Configuration of native-image can be quite daunting though and while Oracle developers work hard at making it easier it's still non-trivial. I'm going to do a live-coding session presenting how this process can be automated away using new tooling currently under development and also discuss the edge cases that arise and have to be handled.
