Engcon wrap up - DTrace at lightspeed

Well I've now got some spare time to mention what I did on the last day of EngCon: I went to the DTrace presentations. The morning session was all three DTrace Iron Chefs presenting an intro --- they each spoke to a segment, with either Bryan or Adam demonstrating snippets on a Ferrari. That was all really neat, but what I was really there to find out came in the afternoon session: the Advanced DTrace Tips, Tricks and Gotchas. Again, this was presented by all three Iron Chefs, but it was really a symphony of Bryan which started out at a reasonable talk and demo tempo, but then accelerated and accelerated. Dan reckons Bryan was going at a millions miles an hour. I must disagree! Not only did the speaking get to light-speed but so did the demonstrations. I was really hard pressed to keep up making notes even typing them into my laptop. So thankyou to Bryan for making the second presentation available online. It will be a lot easier to pass that info back to my colleagues in Sydney. And thankyou to all three Iron Chefs for presenting on DTrace. It really is as cool, radical and revolutionary as I had been lead to believe.
