completed by: Kristian Ivanov

mentors: cotto

Background: Technical writing

Details: We would like a short write up (at least 1000 words) that compares and contrasts the Dalvik VM to Parrot VM, describing which characterists each shared, what things are different, how optimizations are done and which ideas Parrot can utilize from Dalvik. The different types of open source licenses that each VM has should also be described. This paper should be in plain text, which at least 10 links. The links can either be inlined with HTML tags, or numbered and put at the bottome of the write up. Completing this task will also require working with a Parrot mentor to get this posted on as a blog post.


Benefits: Not many people understand the different between the various virtual machines that exists. The document created in this task will increase the community knowledge about Parrot as well as Dalvik.
