I wanted to create a group for people who are have knowledge of low-level aspects of computing to share code, programming techniques, and explanations for why things work the way they do.
The idea is for people who have really delved into a software topic at a low level to share what they have learned.
If you know assembly and can help explain how to use the timer interrupts for PWM on an Arduino, then we'd love to hear you speak. If you have insight on how TCP is implemented in the kernel, I'm sure others would love to hear. Do you have experience using `strace` to track down a bug? Or maybe useful techniques for arranging elements a C struct when creating a data structure. Tell us about the history of network architectures.
Presentations should not be so technical that you need a PhD to understand what is happening. Some events may be geared towards beginners ("Getting started with pointers") while others are for veterans ("Taking advantage of the SIMD pipeline") but the focus should be on digging deep.
If you think you'd have something to share, or if this is the kind of thing you've always wanted to learn more about, then please join!
