Please share this around.

In the BSDCan 2015 keynote, Steve Bourne will talk about about sh/adb which he has never covered before in public. These include:

* sh memory management and interfaces used to interleave heap and stack these were not C stack
* sh has no string length or any other "arbitrary" length restrictions and what that meant for
implementation
* sbrk and porting grief people had (things you dont think of when you write the code)
* my opinion of shellshock
* tricks used and why (eg using top bit of byte as quoted string marker)
* reasons we did all this and wouldn't do it today
* adb interesting problem it runs on one machine is debugging another and compiled on a third
* why i wrote it (Algol68 port) and Dennis added overlays (exec)
* invention of environment variables and why
* How I talked Dennis into putting 'void' into C and other C changes
* why setjmp and longjmp are a good idea (so I could write sh)
* why Bill Joy wrote the C shell

I just realized that the keynote speaker for BSDCan wrote this book which I used during my studies at Carleton University.

The organizers have found a fantastic formula that appeals to a wide range of people from extreme novices to advanced developers.
