Come to this session to learn how to build Java microservices, that start in milliseconds and have low memory footprint. In addition to better performance and resource utilization, this also allows to significantly cut costs in cloud environments. You can achieve those benefits by using GraalVM — new high-performance virtual machine, that can also compile Java code into native binaries, and Helidon — Java microservices framework, running on a fast Netty core.

In this talk we'll go through the best cases for using GraalVM and Helidon, ways to identify whether this approach will work for your project, and how to get started.
