Google Summer of Code Mentor Summit 2008: Part 3

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
I can barely keep track of all the things that I've learned and seen in the last 48 hours, there were so many interesting sessions on topics I've never delved into and about really exciting projects that I hadn't come across. There was a lot of talk about virtual machine research, the Jikes RVM seems really interesting. From the main page:

A distinguishing characteristic of Jikes RVM is that it is implemented in the Java™ programming language and is self-hosted i.e., its Java code runs on itself without requiring a second virtual machine.

I also attended the Parrot Toolchain talk, which described in detail how a High Level Language (Parrot currently supports over 10 in various stages) is turned into Parrot Assembly and then finally Parrot bytecode. This nicely describes why virtual machines simplify many problems of platform dependent code.  

More soon, and check out the pics:
