Fast Bytecodes for Funny Languages
The speaker compares the performance of a trivial program
written in 5 languages that all ride on top of a JVM, including a
deep-dive into why some languages are fast and some are not. Definitely lite, informative and fast paced (well, all my talks are fast-paced).
With more than twenty-five years experience developing compilers, Cliff serves as Azul Systems' Chief JVM Architect.

Cliff has been writing optimizing compilers and JITs for over 15 years. He is invited to speak regularly at industry and academic conferences including JavaOne (two "Rock Star" awards), JVM and VEE; serves on the Program Committee of many conferences (including PLDI and OOPSLA); has published many papers about HotSpot technology and has 15 patents.
