After many years of development, Oracle finally published GraalVM and sparkled a lot of interest in the community. GraalVM is a high-performance polyglot VM with a number of potentially interesting traits we can take advantage of like increased performance and lowered cost. It can also tackle shortcomings of JVM/Scala we are struggling for years like slow-startup times or large jars. Lastly, thanks to its polyglot nature it can open interesting doors we may want to discover. On the other hand, GraalVM may still be bleeding edge technology and having a hard time to deliver the promised features. In this talk, Petr will share with you advantages and disadvantages of adopting GraalVM, provide you guidance if you decide to do so and also share our story in this area including various samples, and recommendations. This talk is focused on JVM and Scala but should be beneficial for everyone with interested in this topic.
