In this hack you'll build applications on the GraalVM platform you thought weren't possible before, mixing the best bits from the ecosystem of popular programming languages like Java, Kotlin, Scala, JavaScript and node.js, Python, Ruby, R and even native ones if you want it.

Your task will be to use GraalVM capabilities -- seamless polyglot between popular languages, native binaries that start up instantly and can be properly used serverless environment, sandboxed native code execution, and so on. Think of the things you cannot build otherwise and let your imagination guide you.

The hack is for individuals. GraalVM people will guide you on your journey on getting started with GraalVM, so if you feel you're just getting started we can help you!
