The ramblings of a former Australian SaND TSC* Principal Field Technologist

Bryan Cantrill will be presenting at AUUG 2005

All the confirmations appear to be done, so I can now say that Bryan is headed downunder to for AUUG 2005

Bryan should not need any
introduction to anyone who reads my blog, but for those who don’t
normally, here is a copy of the preview for the conference.

This is the second in a series of previews of AUUG 2005 – The
Conference for Unix, Linux and Open Source Professionals.

This week we are highlighting guest speaker Bryan Cantrill.

Bryan is a Senior Staff Engineer in the Solaris Kernel Development
Group at Sun Microsystems. His interests include dynamic software
instrumentation, postmortem diagnosability, real-time kernel
implementation and microprocessor architecture.

Over his career Bryan has done work in many kernel subsystems.
Most recently, he was part of the team that designed and implemented
DTrace, a facility for systemic dynamic instrumentation of Solaris
The DTrace team won the Sun 2004 Chairman’s Award for Innovation,
the InfoWorld 2005 Innovators Award, and the high praise of SysAdmin
magazine, which hailed DTrace as a brilliant piece of work.

Bryan will be presenting a plenary session on OpenSolaris and DTrace.

He will also be presenting a half-day tutorial on Solaris 10 Dynamic
tracing (DTrace)
and Containers (which allow you to virtualise your
Solaris OS)
