The NVSL is hosting the Persistent Programming in Real Life (PIRL) 2020 workshop starting this Friday. PIRL is the best (and maybe only) meeting devoted to the practical aspects of programming with persistent memory. Steve and Jishen helped (along with folks from SNIA and Intel) found PIRL to spread knowledge about how to use persistent memory in real computer systems. It’s not a normal research conference — instead, it attracts developers and systems builders using PMEM. Some of the talks are from academics, but most are from the industry.
Since PIRL happens at UCSD annually (except this year because of COVID) NVSL students get easy access to tricks, skills, knowledge, and professional connections that PIRL participants bring with them.
If you’re a student interested in joining the NVSL, you can attend PIRL for free. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
