Beyond JVM

YOW! 2013 Melbourne

The Java platform has grown and evolved in many ways over the past 15 years, and the JVM has become a ubiquitous platform for new languages, high performance computation, and big data processing. But there’s a lot more the JVM could do and more we can make of it.

In this talk we’ll explore key directions the JVM must evolve… via support for alternative languages, integration with native libraries, and optimization strategies. You’ll learn how you can push the JVM beyond its limits today and we’ll discuss ways the JVM will be altered and improved in the future.
