I’ve found the following link, which lists the talks along side the videos, to be the easiest to browse:
There are some cool things going on with transactional package management (Guix specifically). I like how FOSDEM talks feel real and low-key, contrasting with the rockstar attitude that we can see sometimes at other tech conferences.
because it is a community/volunteer run free event of people who care, not a marketing show sponsored by VC money. No need to “sell” something as there are not “buyers” in the audience. We really need more events like fosdem.
I can heartily recommend the talks
Purely Functional GPU Programming with Futhark
and A dozen years of Memcheck.
The former is a high level functional programming language that compiles down to OpenCL, and provides easy to use Python modules that wrap all your functions. I’m currently looking into creating a similar binding infrastructure for Rust and Futhark. Quite amazing and a low barrier to entry for GPU programming.
The latter gives a good overview of the development and evolution of Valgrind, how it works internally and what the current limitations are.
Thanks, I would have missed that (Furthark).
The link submitted takes you to the talks of a single room.
Would have been a better link
