First day at the office after almost a year remote!

Really happy to see getting better and better! I worked a lot on the Gnome code base, but the benefits of a unified client are clear. :)


Another really interesting piece of work: "Unix Shell Programming: The Next 50 Years". The presentation was excellent!

The paper: sigops.org/s/conferences/hotos

Very, very cool presentation of "Stop! Hammer Time: Rethinking Our Approach to Rowhammer Mitigations" yesterday by Kevin Loughlin: the entire presentation RHYMES!

The video: youtube.com/watch?v=dVmDVp57KL

HotOS is a really nice workshop for crazy OS/systems research. Clearly you don't need to be into academic research to enjoy it! The registration is free and videos are online: sigops.org/s/conferences/hotos

Next week I will present my research, "FlexOS: Making OS Isolation Flexible" at HotOS'21!

In this position paper, we investigate flexible isolation boundaries in modern OSes. The goal is
to design an OS that is not bound to a specific isolation approach or mechanism! How cool is this?!

Recommendation: "Hôtel des Lucioles", un album jeunesse plein de bonnes ondes, "insectophile, écologique et humoristique"! Les illustrations sont géniales, la réalisation locale et écolo. 🐝

Il reste 8 jours pour soutenir le projet!

Hey, interested in OS research/systems? EuroSys takes place online Mon-Wed next week and you can still register for free


I am impressed by how powerful is. It is literally a matter of writing reasonably complex source to source transformations in minutes instead of days (for a clang frontend pass for example). Semantic patches are also very easy to maintain.
