Guest lecture by Dr. Lucas Braun from Oracle Labs (13.12.2023)

Dr. Lucas Braun from Oracle Labs will give a talk in the elite program’s special lecture series. The title of the talk is “JavaScript and Databases: a Perfect Match” and it will take place as an online meeting at 3PM on 13 December 2023.


Oracle 23c just released with in-database JavaScript application programming, powered by GraalVM. JavaScript boosts developer productivity because of its popularity and availability of open-source code.

But what does it take to make a JavaScript runtime (GraalVM) work (efficiently!) in a complex system like a database (Oracle) and scale to thousands of users?

This talk will not only answer this question, but also show JavaScript application development live in the database.

Join us in this talk, given by Dr. Lucas Braun who is working with the Oracle Labs team in Zurich, Switzerland. Oracle Zurich is where the major bits of Oracle Database Multilingual Engine (for JavaScript) and Property Graphs, MySQL Heatwave, Oracle Graph Studio, Oracle Cloud Autonomous Dependency Management and generative AI components, as well as many other flagship Oracle products are being developed. Besides the main part of the talk, you will also get a short glimpse into all of these topics as well as learn about Oracle Labs’ internship program.
