A new programming language is created every fortnight. Usually, the designers
start by creating a syntax tree interpreter, and then the language is shown to
potential users. Users find the language great, but just a little too slow. So
the creators design a byte code and the program is translated into the byte
code
before it is run. That certainly helps, but the language is still rather
crawling…

GraalVM wants to change this state of affairs. You can write your syntax tree
interpreter using our API and we will make everything fast! To convince you
that
this is for real, I will show you that our Ruby implementation is ten times
faster than other implementations. Come to see how to create the fastest
environment for running your favorite programming language.
