In this session, Grails and Micronaut creator Graeme Rocher discusses the evolution of the Java and other software platforms and frameworks over the last 10 years and the challenges in adapting these to the fast-evolving microservice and serverless space. He demonstrates how new projects such as Micronaut and Oracle’s GraalVM are taking unique approaches to address issues, such as memory footprint, startup time, and cold-start performance, making Java competitive in a space where newer languages such as Go and Node.js shine.
Scheduled on Thursday from 16:30 to 17:20 in Room 8
