Writing JIT compilers for dynamic languages by hand is an arduous and heroic process, particularly for dynamic languages with “interesting” semantics. Meta-tracing is an approach for reducing that effort; VM authors only write an interpreter and some hints. In this hands-on session students will implement a small dynamic language from scratch as well as a JITusing the RPython meta-tracing language that underlies the PyPy project.
