Do you want to run your applications twice as fast on half the memory?

Well, we too, but that isn't quite possible just yet..! However, GraalVM is definitely a good step in that direction. And when it comes to startup times, you can actually slash them by orders of magnitude by pre-compiling the code. This talk is a must-see if you want to run your apps and services as fast as possible and get the most out of your hardware!

In our October meetup, we will take a good look at GraalVM. This time we are happy to welcome Alina Yurenko from Oracle Labs. This is a good opportunity to get up to date with the latest news on one of the most important additions to the JVM-ecosystem.


GraalVM is a high-performance virtual machine, bringing new performance optimizations for individual languages and seamless interoperability for polyglot applications.

Recently GraalVM team released 19.0 — first production release, and we’ll discuss the most recent project updates, and how they can help you make applications development more powerful and productive.

You will learn what you can do with GraalVM, in particular: use it as a JVM JIT compiler, run polyglot programs, compile them ahead of time for faster start up and lower footprint, and more. You’ll also discover the best cases for using GraalVM for Java applications, where to start, and how to make the most out of it for your project.

Speaker bio:

Alina is a Developer Advocate for GraalVM at Oracle Labs, a research & development organization at Oracle. Coming from developer relations background, Alina now has joined the GraalVM team to work with its global community.


Food and drinks from around 18:00. The talk will begin around 20 minutes later. If you're interrested, we will grab a beer at Newsman afterwards.

It is free to attend meetups at JavaBin Stavanger :-)
