What we’re about
What was the last paper within the realm of computing you read and loved? What did it inspire you to build or tinker with? Come share the ideas in an awesome academic/research paper with fellow engineers, programmers, and paper-readers. Lead a session and show off code that you wrote that implements these ideas or just give us the lowdown about the paper (because of HARD MATH!). Otherwise, just come, listen, and discuss.
We're curating a [url=https://github.com/papers-we-love/papers-we-love]repository[/url] for papers and places-to-find papers. You can contribute by adding PR's for papers, code, and/or links to other repositories.
We're posting [url=https://www.youtube.com/user/PapersWeLove]videos[/url] of all our presentations, from all our chapters. If you need to reach out to us or have ideas for papers, just ask us via our[url=https://twitter.com/PapersWeLoveSEA] twitter account[/url].
Papers We Love has a [url=https://github.com/papers-we-love/papers-we-love/blob/master/CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md]Code of Conduct[/url]. Please contact one of the Meetup's organizers if anyone is not following it. Be good to each other and to the PWL community!

• What we'll do: Max will be presenting on Unikraft: Fast, Specialized Unikernels the Easy Way
Unikernels are famous for providing excellent performance in terms of boot times, throughput and memory consumption, to name a few metrics. However, they are infamous for making it hard and extremely time consuming to extract such performance, and for needing significant engineering effort in order to port applications to them. We introduce Unikraft, a novel micro-library OS that (1) fully modularizes OS primitives so that it is easy to customize the unikernel and include only relevant components and (2) exposes a set of composable, performance-oriented APIs in order to make it easy for developers to obtain high performance. Our evaluation using off-the-shelf applications such as nginx, SQLite, and Redis shows that running them on Unikraft results in a 1.7x-2.7x performance improvement compared to Linux guests. In addition, Unikraft images for these apps are around 1MB, require less than 10MB of RAM to run, and boot in around 1ms on top of the VMM time (total boot time 3ms-40ms). Unikraft is a Linux Foundation open source project and can be found at www.unikraft.org
Will be both online and in person, address below, but if you want to join virtually, our usual link at https://meet.jit.si/paperswelove
In Person we're meeting at Capitol Hill Library Meeting Room
• Important to know
As a chapter of Papers We Love we abide by and enforce the PWL Code of Conduct (https://github.com/papers-we-love/seattle/blob/master/code-of-conduct.md) at our events. Please give it a read, plan on acting like an adult, and involve one of the organizers if you need help.
Now talking on Discord in the #seattle channel
If you have a paper you'd like to present, or even just a mini, please hit up one of the organizers :) We're always looking for more presenters.
