In our October meetup, we will take another 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. Food and drinks are served at 17:00pm, meetup starts at 17:30pm.


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.
