The first Persistent Programming In Real Life meeting was a big success! It was great to see such an interesting and interested community focused on using persistent memory to build computer systems.
Plans are underway for next year’s PIRL meeting, but in the meantime, we are assembling this blog to keep spreading real-world experiences with persistent memory.
The blog’s posts will feature a variety of content:
- Videos from PIRL 2019 with extra content and perspectives from the speakers.
- Posts from our growing list of regular contributors.
- Announcements about PIRL itself. We have plans for a programming contest and some awards for next year.
In keeping with the spirit of the PIRL workshop, posts will focus single-mindedly on real-world experience using persistent memories to build computer systems.
Please stay tuned!
