FOSDEM'19 - Microkernel devroom
The year 2019 marked Genode Lab's turn to organize the Microkernels and Component-based OS devroom at FOSDEM 2019 in Brussels. The devroom has been established in 2012 and every year since, varying open-source organizations or private microkernel enthusiasts have taken over and passed the organization helmet on. We had a great time meeting familiar and new faces at the devroom and, in my personal opinion, we had an interesting mixture of talks this year. I especially want to thank the Unikernel speakers, since they brought a breath of fresh air into the devroom, while staying at eye-level regarding the technical skills required for systems programming. So, thank you!
As for Genode, I like to point out Alexander's talk about the progress he made regarding Genode's unified virtualization interface.
Also, Norman gave an unexpected lightning talk about the current state of Genode's Sculpt OS, which really gathered traction.
All talks are available at FOSDEM's main site. Have fun watching and if you feel like organizing the Microkernel devroom next year, let us know - we would be happy to give support.
