Back to Canada's west coast!

Members of our core team, including Tomeu Vizoso, Gustavo Padovan, Andrej Shadura and Gabriel Krisman Bertazi, are headed to beautiful British Columbia to take part in this year's edition of Linux Plumbers Conference (LPC), which runs from November 13 to 15, at the Sheraton Wall Centre Conference Centre. This is the second time in a few months that Collaborans visit Canada's west coast, following a great Open Source Summit last August!

Widely recognized as the premier event for developers working at all levels of the Linux kernel's plumbing layer and beyond, LPC 2018 is a can't-miss event, jam-packed with microconferences, a refereed main track, a Kernel Summit track, a Networking Summit track, multiple BoFs, and more.

In addition to their attendance, two Collaborans will also be taking the stage during the conference. Gabriel will be taking part in the Kernel Summit Track, to speak on filename encoding and case-insensitive filesystems, while Gustavo will be joining the Testing & Fuzzing microconference to provide an update, alongside BayLibre's Kevin Hilman, on KernelCI, the soon-to-be Linux Foundation project. Gustavo will also be leading a discussion on one of the project's newest features, automated bisection, which is now used with both mainline and stable trees. You can read more about how this new feature came to be in Guillaume Tucker's blog post, as well as how it is now being used in testing for Google's Chromebooks

See you in Vancouver! 

Session details

  • KernelCI update & automated bisection
    Kevin Hilman & Gustavo Padovan – Tuesday, Nov. 13, 9:30 PST.

    Testing & Fuzzing microconference. The latest on the KernelCI project.

  • Filename encoding and case-insensitive filesystems
    Gabriel Kristman Bertazi – Thursday, Nov. 15, 9:45 PST.

    Case-insensitive file name lookups is a recurrent topic on Linux filesystems, but its stalled development has regained traction in the past few years, thanks to its applications in platforms like Valve's SteamOS and Android. Despite aiming at simplifying the file lookup operation from a user point of view, since human languages don't directly correlate to arbitrary case folding and encoding composition premises, the actual implementation of encoding and case-insensitive awareness carry an outstanding number of issues and corner cases, which require a clear behavioral definition from the file system layer in order to get it right. File systems developers are invited to come discuss such premises and what is expected from an in-kernel common encoding and case-insensitive abstraction for file systems.
