Bruce Spang (https://twitter.com/brucespang) from Fastly will cover the Bimodal Multicast (http://www.csl.mtu.edu/cs6461/www/Reading/Birman99.pdf) paper by Kenneth P. Birman, Mark Hayden, Oznur Ozkasap, Zhen Xiao,. Mihai Budiu, and Yaron Minsky.
Doors open at 6:30 pm; the presentation will begin at 7:00 pm; and, yes, there will be beer and pizza. We will do our best to stream the event live (we will announce the link on this thread the day of the event)
After Bruce presents the paper, we will open up the floor to discussion and questions.
We hope that you'll read the paper before the Meetup (and if you don't, no worries). If you have any questions, thoughts, or related information, please visit our *github-thread* on the matter: https://github.com/papers-we-love/papers-we-love/issues/110 .
