The 24th ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles is about to kick off in beautiful Nemacolin Woodlands this morning. Several of us are here and will be live-blogging the talks and Q&A sessions. We've got exciting papers on multi-core scalability, fast transactions, synchronization and many other topics coming up, and that is just the first session!
Last day of IMC 2013 - starting with network scaling and their analysis at scale and will have some rather funky if not weird papers later today.
I'm here bright and early at the OCaml 2013 workshop at ICFP with Heidi Howard, Leo White, Jeremy Yallop and David Sheets! There's a packed session today with lots of us presenting, so we'll swap over editing this post as the day progresses. I also need to pop out to attend a panel on the future of Haskell so I'll be missing the bindings session, sadly!
Marius Eriksen and Michael Sperber are co-chairing this year. Functional programming is a hot topic these days, and this year's program reflects the maturing nature of the program. Record number of submissions, and we could easily have made this a multi-day program. Videos will be available online after the event.
Keynote is from Dave Thomas on what we can learn from the "language wars of the past". His talk will cover the business, social and technical ends of building Smalltalk and his "objaholic" experiences with pushing language technology into businesses, where they never had any intention of changing in this regard. This worked over the years because it made a material difference to these businesses. Dave still uses the K programming a lot at work.
Once again collocated with SIGCOMM is the HotSDN conference. I'm here live blogging the proceedings, SDN controllers permitting....
I'm back again, liveblogging from SIGCOMM13. Yesterdays blog was in fact not clyoned out of existence, but a very successful poster session kept me busy until after busses had started leaving for banquet. As a result of the successful poster session I've been here since 7am....
Hello again from SIGCOMM 2013, Hong Kong, day 2. I'll be live blogging as much of the event as I can, weather permitting...
