Tomer Gabel - Nashorn: JavaScript that doesn't suck (Slides)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One of Java 8's much-touted features, Nashorn is a fully-fledged JavaScript engine written purely in Java and intended to replace the aging Rhino engine. Completely rebuilt from scratch and leveraging several significant JVM advancements, Nashorn provides a robust and highly performant platform to host and embed JavaScript in your applications. In this talk I'll focus on the whys and the hows of Nashorn, provide a hopefully complete overview of the new engine and its features.

A programming junkie and computer history aficionado, Tomer's been around the block a few times before settling at Wix as a system architect. In the last couple of years he's developed a major crush on Scala, promoting it within the Israeli software industry as part of Java.IL (Israeli Java user group) and Underscore (Israeli Scala user group) and organizing the annual Scalapeño conference in Tel-Aviv.
