In a world running at breakneck speed to embrace JavaScript, it is refreshing to see a project that embraces Java to provides solution that deal with the new world and even improve it. I describe Truffle, a project that aim to build multi-language, multi-tenant, multi-threaded, multi-node, multi-tooling and multi-system environment on top of Java virtual machine with the goal to form the fastest and most flexible execution environment on the planet! Learn about Truffle and its Java API to become real polyglot, use the best language for a task and never ask again: Do I really have to use that crummy language?
