Persistent Programming In Real Life (PIRL)
San Diego, California, USA
July 22-23, 2019

PIRL brings together software development leaders interested in learning about programming methodologies for persistent memories (e.g. NVDIMMs, Optane DC) and sharing their experiences with others. This is a meeting for developer project leads on the front lines of persistent programming, not sales, marketing, or non-technical management.

PIRL features a program of 18 presentations and 5 keynotes from industry-leading developers who have built real systems using persistent memory. They will share what they have done (and want to do) with persistent memory, what worked, what didn’t, what was hard, what was easy, what was surprising, and what they learned.

This year’s keynote presentations will be:
– Pratap Subrahmanyam (Vmware): Programming Persistent Memory In A Virtualized Environment Using Golang
– Zuoyu Tao (Oracle): Exadata With Persistent Memory – An Epic Journey
– Dan Williams (Intel Corporation): The 3rd Rail Of Linux Filesystems: A Survival Story
– Stephen Bates (Eideticom): Successfully Deploying Persistent Memory And Acceleration Via Compute Express Link
– Scott Miller (Dreamworks): Persistent Memory In Feature Animation Production

Other speakers include engineers from NetApp, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Oracle, Sandia National Labs, Intel, SAP, Redhat, and universities from around the world. Full Details are available at the PIRL Website:

PIRL will be held on the University of California, San Diego campus at Scripps Forum, a state-of-the-art conference facility just a few meters from the beach.

PIRL is small. We are limiting attendance this year to under 100 people, including speakers. There will be lots of time for informal discussion and networking.
