Cloud-Optimized Scala via GraalVM

About this Session

The cloud environment opens new frontiers for optimizing Scala programs and minimizing computation costs. In this talk, we unveil new profiling and optimization techniques that rely on the cloud-native environment to find the most optimal and cost-effective executable for your application. We finish by demoing a Kubernetes operator that, behind the scenes, transforms a running Scala cloud-native application into its lean-and-mean counterpart.


Vojin Jovanovic

Vojin believes that programs can be described in an abstract way and at the same time be executed as quickly as their manually optimized counterparts. To this end, he is working Oracle Labs to improve dynamic compilation in multilingual environments.

Before joining Oracle, Vojin received his Ph.D. in the Scala laboratory at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), where he developed a platform for simply adding domain-specific optimizations to existing Scala libraries.
