GraalVM compiles either in ahead-of-time mode or in a dynamic compilation mode. so you can turn Java into an AOT-compiled language generating a binary executable like C or Go (providing fast startup & low footprint), & make C a JIT-compiled language with garbage collection like Java. GraalVM is also designed to be embedded in other runtimes like databases or edge computing servers, or in dedicated devices with virtualization at the language runtime level.
In this session you will see some of the different ways to use GraalVM & the ways you can get superior performance & flexibility for your programs, especially for the cloud.
