Description

After having run a standalone BPF microconference for the first time in last year's [0] [1] [2] Linux Plumbers conference, we've been overwhelmed with throughout positive feedback. We received more submissions than we could have accommodated for the one-day slot, and the room at the conference venue was fully packed despite the fact that the networking track had about half of their submissions with BPF related topics as well.

We would like to continue on this success by organizing a BPF micro conference also for 2019. The microconference is aiming to catch BPF related kernel topics mainly in BPF core area as well as having focused discussions in specific subsystems (tracing, security,
networking) with short 1-2 slides in order to get BPF developers together in a face to face working meetup for tackling and hashing out unresolved issues and discussing new ideas.

Expected audience
Folks knowledgeable with BPF that work in core areas or in subsystems making use of BPF.

Expected topics
libbpf, loader unification
Standardized BPF ELF format
Multi-object semantics and linker-style logic for BPF loaders
Improving verifier scalability to 1 million instructions
Sleep-able bpf programs
State on BPF loop support
Proper String support in BPF
Indirect calls in BPF
BPF timers
BPF type format (BTF)
Unprivileged BPF
BTF of vmlinux
BTF annotated raw_tracepoints
BPF (k)litmus support
bpftool
LLVM BPF backend
JITs and BPF offloading
