Designing Versatile Unix Utilities, Eric Radman


Designing versatile utilities for Unix-like systems requires attention
to specific concerns and involves specific disciplines.

This talk aims to highlight the key concerns in play during the
development of entrproject.org that are applicable for anyone who
endeavors to develop tooling that establishes more effective paradigms
for working on *BSD.

Speaker Bio

Eric has been building and supporting in-house and public-facing
Internet services on BSD and Linux for more than 13 years. His most
significant endeavours have centered on eradicating operational
dissonance between services by writing new applications or restructuring
existing network services to take advantage of common data marshaled by
PostgreSQL. For nearly 5 years he has also functioned as apologist for
the use of built-in self-tests and test-driven development.

Eric refuses to believe that the ThinkPad keyboard is dead,
notwithstanding abundant evidence that it has been replaced. Although he
has never been an outstanding writer, he considers composing essays and
to be essential and a compelling reason to be up before sunrise. Select
journal entries can be found on his home page at http://eradman.com/.
