Good Times @ UCSD

We had a great time presenting to Professor Snoeren's undergrad OS course at UCSD yesterday. Most of the students had used Solaris in the course of their schoolwork, but hadn't yet dabbled much with OpenSolaris. The presentation Steve put together was a very nice introduction to the project...showing how the students could get involved, how to build the source, etc.

Here's Steve's OpenSolaris presentation.

We then followed up with a 30 minute presentation (with demos) of DTrace, which was well received. The presentation I used was derived from another (much longer) presentation Bryan, Mike, and Adam put together. The first part of the presentation provides the foundations for understanding why DTrace is such a key part of Solaris's observability portfolio. The rest of the presentation is structured mainly around the demos which highlight some of the key DTrace features. I would have loved to delve deeper, but there's only so much one can do in 30 minutes.

Here's the DTrace presentation I used.
Here's the corresponding demo scripts.

Comments:

Eric: Glad it went well and that you enjoyed it. Must have been strange to present to a class in the exact same room you were once a student. :-) I hope the students enjoyed it as much as you and Steve did! Take care... --ClaireG

Thanks Claire. Strange and nostalgic at the same time. :) We look forward to doing this again.

...and a big thank-you to Eric and Steve for dropping by the supercomputer center's IT garrison to chat with my coworkers and I. Thanks again for all the info! -GBA

Jeff, it was great catching up and hearing about what SDSC is up to. Thanks for having us, and let's stay in touch.
