Micronaut is a reflection-free app-development framework that uses ahead-of-time (AoT) compilation to precompute everything in the application, paving the way for lightning-fast startup times and significantly reduced memory consumption. What if I told you that you can reduce the startup time by orders of magnitude? And what if you could reduce memory consumption even more? GraalVM is a new universal virtual machine from Oracle that supports a polyglot runtime environment. GraalVM has the ability to compile Java applications down to native machine code, making it an ideal partner for Micronaut. In this talk you will learn how you can take advantage of GraalVM's powerful capabilities to convert your Micronaut applications to run as binary native images.
