PIRL’20 is online this year and will be running each Friday for several hours from October 16 to the 30th.
You are invited to propose a presentation at the second annual Persistent Programming in Real Life (PIRL). PIRL brings together software development leaders interested in learning about programming methodologies for persistent memories and sharing their experiences with others. This is a meeting for developer project leads on the front lines of persistent programming, not sales, marketing, or non-technical management. Tell us about what you have done (and want to do) with persistent memory, what worked, what didn’t, what was hard, what was easy, what was surprising, and what did you learn? How can others learn from your experience? PIRL is small. We are limiting attendance this year to under 150 people, including speakers. There will be lots of time for informal discussion and networking. If you would like to present at PIRL, fill out this form. For instance, a proposal might include:
- What you did or are trying to do.
- Your experience, and the lessons others can learn from it.
- We expect to see code!
We welcome talks that describe new tools, but we are not interested in sales pitches. Attendees should come away from every session with actionable information that can be utilized to use persistent memory more effectively.
We are open to many different kinds of talks. Possibilities include:
- Talks about experiences on a particular project
- Potentially develop or write code live or provide samples during the presentation.
- Do you have a fun challenge for persistent coding? We’re accepting code challenges, and we’ll be offering two or three of them so you can show others your skills.
PIRL will be online only with a combination of live and pre-recorded content. There will be three components to each presentation:
- A pre-recorded, long-form presentation (20-40 minutes).
- A live 5-10 minute summary presentation and Q&A session.
- An optional blog entry to accompany your pre-recorded presentation.
We will group several summary presentations into a ~1 hour session along with a joint Q&A session/panel discussion.
- Presentation proposal deadline: September
1st8th, 2020 (midnight, AOE)

- PIRL Meeting: Fridays, October 16-30th.
