Joyent Manta Show & Tell for Big Data
Wednesday, September 18, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM (PDT) at Joyent HQ in San Francisco, CA
What’s Manta? It’s Joyent’s latest service offering that combines a distributed object storage service with a massively parallel compute engine, right on the object server. The upshot is extremely low latency access to your objects, and with a familiar Unix pipeline as the interface. That means you can process terabytes of logs, video, images, or text without fuss.
Kartlytics: Mario Kart 64 analytics is just one type of job you can do with Manta. We’ll have a quick walkthrough of Manta’s operation and then follow-up with a series of demos.
Show us your Manta Demo and We’ll Show you Ours!
No powerpoint slides here, just a big pile of data, a text editor and a command line! Bring your best Manta demo to share during a 5-10 minute Show and Tell. You can use this Manta free trial to get started.
Manta t-shirt(s) will be give to all demo participants.
The Third Annual Solaris Family Reunion
Are you a friend of Solaris / illumos / SmartOS / OmniOS? Will you be in SF on Sept 23? If so – time to party!
This year’s reunion offers every attendee the opportunity to give a 5-minute lightning talk on “what I’ve been doing since Sun”. We look forward to hearing about what you’ve all been up to, and I’ll be updating the list below as speakers are confirmed (tell me if your name should be on it!).
The event is open to Sun and other Solaris alumni, as well as friends, family and other interested parties. Yes, there will be food and drink. Please contact Deirdré for your invitation.
For those who can’t attend in person, the talks will be streamed. (You don’t need an invitation for that, the live stream location will be announced via @JoyentSmartOS.)

Advanced Performance Analysis and Debugging for Node.js
Tuesday, November 5, 2013 at 9:00 AM – Thursday, November 7, 2013 at 5:00 PM (PST) in the Joyent training room, Joyent HQ, San Francisco, CA
This course covers using DTrace and mdb to troubleshoot bugs and performance issues with Node.js applications and the Node.js engine. We examine all facets of the Node.js software stack, including the operating system itself, Node.js/v8, and Node applications. For those unfamiliar with DTrace and mdb, an introduction with many examples is shown. Existing DTrace probes for Node modules, including restify and bunyan, are examined. Also covered: adding DTrace probes to Node applications, and adding probes to new Node modules, and the use of mdb and DTrace to examine Node application state. Techniques, strategies, and tools for debugging Node applications on any operating system are also discussed. The course has extensive lab exercises to reinforce the concepts and techniques covered.

Happy 10th Birthday, DTrace! “Ten years ago this morning — at 10:27a local time, to be exact — DTrace was integrated. On the occasion of DTrace’s fifth birthday a half-decade ago, I reflected on much of the drama of the final DTrace splashdown, but much has happend in the DTrace community in the last five years; some highlights” – Bryan Cantrill
