We on Team DTrace have realized that with so much going on in the world of DTrace — ports to new systems, providers for new languages and development of new DTrace-based tools — the time is long overdue for a DTrace summit of sorts. So I’m very pleased to announce our first-ever DTrace (un)conference: dtrace.conf(08), to be held in San Francisco on March 14, 2008. One of the most gratifying aspects of DTrace is its community: because DTrace operates both across abstraction boundaries and to great depth, it naturally attracts technologists who do the same — systems generalists who couple an ability to think abstractly about the system with a thirst for the concrete data necessary to better understand it. So if nothing else, dtrace.conf should provide for thought-provoking and wide-ranging conversation!
The conference wiki has more details; hope to see you at dtrace.conf in San Francisco in March!
