Paul Nauman presents: Building a Better JVM

Mar 1, 2017 · Chicago, United States of America

Building a Better JVM 

In this session we’ll examine the case for building an open-source Java Virtual Machine (JVM) in Java. We’ll look at a brief history of some previous disruptive technologies. We’ll consider what a JVM does and how it works, and we’ll discuss some of the indications that existing implementations are problematic. Then we’ll look at some examples of JVMs written in Java and the implementation challenges of such an approach. Finally we’ll consider a fledgling project that could serve to start this transition.


Paul is a Principal Sales Engineer at Azul. He was previously a member of the JVM Sustaining Engineering organization at Oracle Corp. Paul has also worked for Sun Microsystems, Ameritech and Bell Laboratories. Paul has an extensive background in system-level programming in telecommunications and financial services.
