First Date with GraalVM (JUG IL)

GraalVM - the newest JVM extension generated a lot of buzz in the industry, already earning the trust of such industry giants as Twitter. The promises GraalVM gives definitely sound good: a better performance, ability to run polyglot languages and more. In this talk we’ll learn what exactly is GraalVM, what hides behind the scene, how come GraalVM is technically able to fulfil the promises it gave, and should we jump on the GraalVM hype train too.
