Hello nixers,
I'd like to announce the very first edition of the nixers.net conf.
We will host the conference on Sunday the 1st of November between 2-4pm UTC depending on the number of talks.

The call for proposal is now closed.
The presentations has to fulfill these criteria:
  • Fit within a time limit of 15min
  • 3-5min for Q&A
  • The topic should be anything that is usually posted on nixers: a project you are working on, a unix story, some research about a topic, some lesser known unix tool, stuff you've discovered on unix, etc..
  • The slides should contain the logo of the conf. You can find a version for light background and a version for dark background.
  • The presentation should be under CC-0 if recorded and sharing the slides.
You can either choose to have your talk recorded or not.
Contact me on IRC, email, or on the forums with your ideas to reserve a spot. Send me your slides, general title, and ideas. Try to finalize it as much as possible before contacting me, and let me know how you'd like to be addressed.

Be sure to share you slides and content at least 4 days before the conf to be included in the schedule. Otherwise, you can always geek out with members after the "official" talks and present whatever you want to present. Let's make it fun and games.

You can propose any platform to host the conference, so far we've tested jitsi and bigbluebutton. Bigbluebutton is perfect, however we'll need to record the conference ourselves as bigbluebutton format is composed of a mix of slides and audio only. We'll go with BBB, bigbluebutton, with the help of faimaison and the link will be shared here and on IRC on the day of the conference.
Only presenter will join with the mic, everyone else should join as listen only.
A tutorial of the UI will be given at the start of the conference.
Beware that this uses webrtc, and your browser should support it.

Please note: The event will be recorded for our use. Any comments, chats, or voice recordings by attendees may be used as part of the final recorded and published conference.

Updates about the conference will be found in this very post.
Cheers!



Current List of Talks:

Schedule.
  • Everything about embedding static data in UNIX binaries — mort
    Description: Our programs contain all sorts of static data; text strings like usage information, HTML templates, graphics shader programs, etc. We will take a deep dive into how, exactly, this works on UNIX, and the ways in which you can embed static data into your own programs.
  • Introduction to diskless boot — freem
    Description: PXE is Preboot eXecution Environment, how computers can boot without having any OS on local storage
  • What does it take to resolve a hostname — venam
    Description: Resolving hostnames (DNS?) might not seem like it, but it's complicated. Let's take a moment to see if we can at least demystify what happens on the client side instead of seeing it as a big tangled mess of configurations, libraries, and tools.
  • How I try reallly hard to only read.emails — z3bra
    Description: My email setup got somewhat complicated over the years, to adapt to the clusterfuck that "modern" emails are today. I read my emails in mutt(1), and I want all of them to display nicely in a terminal. For that, I process emails (mostly HTML ones) to display them nicely, reflow them to the terminal width, extract links, optionally shorten them (using a local URL shortner), and so on. It doesn't look like much, but there are multiple stuff involved like URL shortening, find(1), mblaze(1), ...
