NetLdn 47 will be on Thursday 12th of October 2023, talks starting at our usual time of 7.00PM and in our usual venue:
Talk 1: Fabrics
A software engineer's view into how contemporary hardware operates and what does that mean for network and infrastructure layers, as seen in the context of machine learning hype. Fabrics, in particular non-IP fabrics, routing of address space (no, not IP address space, the real address space), Infiniband and custom transports, feeding accelerators with data and what does that mean for the networking part of the system, and how software could and does abuse the potential of underlying hardware.
Presenter: Ignas Bagdonas
Talk 2: TBD
We're still on the lookout for a 2nd talk this month. Have you been working on a particularly prickly protocol problem at work, or have recently dived down a deep diagnostics hole? These make great lightning talks: https://netldn.uk/cfp
