Ops! Devs! All!
We are meeting at M-Go in Culver City for an evening of formal presentations and Q&A. First off is Nathan from Verizon EdgeCast:
Visualizing AS paths through the Internet using RIPE/ATLAS
Nathan Moore, Web Performance Engineer, Verizon EdgeCast
RIPE's ATLAS project allows the collection of RUM (Real User Metric) data from across the Internet. Returning results in JSON format, Nathan shares a visualization tool which creates a tree showing the AS paths from the geographically distributed RIPE clients and a common destination and the process and challenges he went through to create it.
Our second talk is from Daryll from Technicolor:
Scale Computing When Bandwidth is the Problem
Daryll Strauss, VP of Software Engineering, Technicolor
Feature film production creates large files that need to be processed very quickly. This talk will discuss these requirements and how they change the requirements of the data center.
Daryll is a software engineer that has been using the net before there was an Internet. His first job after college included running a MILNET IMP. He’s always owned and run Unix systems, so when Linux became available he started running it on every computer he owns. Since then he’s contributed open source code to both XFree86 and the Linux kernel. He developed the first hardware accelerated 3D solution for Linux using 3Dfx hardware. He spent the last 25 years working on the back side of Hollywood. During that time he built the cluster of DEC Alpha Linux systems used to render the film, “Titanic”, which was the first use of Linux in a major motion picture, and helped contribute to the effects for two films that won awards for their visual effects. These days Daryll is on the board of a Crash Space, a hacker space in Culver City, and is VP of Software Engineering for Technicolor, where he is leading a team that wants to change the way Hollywood produces film and television content.
