There were BSD summits, tutorials and talks, including NetBSD & pkgsrc ones.
I came to Paris on Wednesday in order to participate in tutorials:
- Thursday – DTrace for Developers: no more printfs – by George Neville-Neil
- Friday – How to untangle your threads from a giant lock in a multiprocessor system – by Taylor R. Campbell
The NetBSD Summit
On Friday there was a NetBSD summit that gathered around 15 developers.
I have not participated in it myself because of the tutorial on SMP. There were three presentations:
- News from the version control front – by joerg,
- Scripting DDB with Forth – by uwe,
- NetBSD on Google Compute Engine – by bsiegert.
During Saturday and Sunday there were several NetBSD and pkgsrc related presentations:
- A Modern Replacement for BSD spell(1) – Abhinav Upadhyay
- Portable Hotplugging: NetBSD’s uvm_hotplug(9) API development – Cherry G. Mathew
- Hardening pkgsrc – Pierre Pronchery
- Reproducible builds on NetBSD – Christos Zoulas
- The school of hard knocks – PT1 – Sevan Janiyan
- The LLDB Debugger on NetBSD – Kamil Rytarowski
- What’s in store for NetBSD 8.0? – Alistair Crooks
During the closing ceremony there was a speech by Alistair Crooks on behalf of The NetBSD Foundation.
At the conference I presented my work on “The LLDB Debugger on NetBSD”:
Plan for the next milestone
Resume porting tsan and msan to NetBSD with a plan to switch back to the LLDB porting.
This work was sponsored by The NetBSD Foundation.
