I will present a tutorial on Graal at the CGO conference in San 
Francisco (the location is close to SFO airport) this Sunday:

If you are interested to hear what distinguishes Graal from other 
compilers, I welcome you to join. Please forward this email to anyone 
who might be interested.

The tutorial covers the following topics:
* Key distinguishing features of Graal,
* Introduction to the Graal IR: basic properties, instructions, and 
optimization phases
* Speculative optimizations: first-class support for optimistic 
optimizations and deoptimization
* Graal API: separation of the compiler from the VM
* Snippets: expressing high-level semantics in low-level Java code
* Compiler intrinsics: use all your hardware instructions with Graal
* Using Graal for static analysis
* Custom compilations with Graal: integration of the compiler with an 
application or library
* Graal as a compiler for dynamic programming languages in the Truffle
