Join Andy Wingo's talk, "Production high-performance networking with Snabb and LuaJIT"
linux.conf.au is a conference about the Linux operating system, and all aspects of the thriving ecosystem of Free and Open Source Software that has grown up around it. This year LCA2017 will take place during the 16th-20th January, 2017 in Hobart.
If you are attending the event, don't miss Andy Wingo's talk on Production high-performance networking with Snabb and LuaJIT. Save it on your calendar on Friday from 10:40 am to 11:25 am.
The talk wil be about Snabb, a toolkit for building user-space network functions. Snabb is entirely written in the expressive Lua language, minimizing the amount of code that you have to write to get stuff done. Snabb specifically uses the LuaJIT implementation of Lua, giving us excellent code generation as well as efficient access to low-level binary data and AVX2 assembly generation. Andy will also describe how Snabb is used in practice in major telecoms and ISPs to provide IPv6 transition technologies to entire countries.
See you soon!
