Lars Bak leads the Google Aarhus Denmark lab. He’s one of the original developers of Sun HotSpot Java VM. the Self Programming Language, and the sun Connected Limited Device Configuration VM for mobile phone. He’s schedule to do a talk at JAOO Aarhaus, Denmark (Sept. 30, 2008). Unconfirmed rumors report he will be announcing “Google Secret Project” during his JAOO keynote.

It’s hard to know for sure what is coming but the popular speculation is that Google will be announcing a dynamic language runtime with support for Python, JavaScript, and Java. A language runtime running on both server-side and client-side with support for a broad range of client devices including mobile phones would be pretty interesting.
