Video of my talk at #lca2017 is already online at Very good job from the #lca2017! Even the Linux Foundation needs several months to put videos online, here at LCA the videos are published the day after the talk was giving.

Congrats to #lca2017 folks!

Due to an upcoming trip to Australia/New Zealand, I am going to spend an insane amount of time in an airplane or in airport waiting for an airplane.

In preparation for this, I am looking for suggestions of ebooks to read, especially in the area of low-level/hardware development (FPGA for beginners, architecture of processors, etc.), kernel related things, or ebooks related to team management. For example, "Is parallel programming hard, and if so, what can I do about it?" looks like a good thing to read during this time.

Suggestions welcome :-) Thanks!

I think what are my first two gcc patches have been committed today:;a=commitdiff;h=6c8f362e1f17cce05131eb8ff53963d64bc69484 and;a=commitdiff;h=966d046c08ba50fc988ac614f84f2d49c1546e28. They fix an obscure issue on an obscure architecture (Blackfin). But still, it's in gcc! :)
