PLDI and the Importance of Virtualization for Developers

My VMware colleague, Ole Agesen, recently gave a keynote at the Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI) conference in Beijing. PLDI is a forum where researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners exchange information on the latest practical and experimental work in the design and implementation of programming languages.

Ole’s talk focused on why virtualization should not be ignored by today’s software developers, language designers and implementers – a topic that is important to us at VMware! He discussed how virtualization affects guest software and got into more detail about the performance of virtualization software.
