GraalVM Project Advisory Board

We are announcing the establishment of the GraalVM Project Advisory Board — an advisory committee, composed of key project contributors and partners in the ecosystem with a shared goal of driving the GraalVM project forward. Such organizations can nominate their Representative for the Board. The Representative will act as the main contact point for all project-related matters associated with their company.

The Advisory Board Goals

  • Discuss community engagement and contributor interaction;
  • Provide cumulative feedback from the community and partner ecosystem;
  • Discuss ways to drive project awareness and adoption.

The Board will meet at least every three months via video call and once per year in person. Board meetings may include additional attendees contributing to specific topics of interest. A summary of the discussions will be published on the project website
