Next week is the GCC Summit, in Ottawa. I’ll be giving a talk there about my work on the incremental compiler. That will be fun, but what I’m really looking forward to is seeing all the other GCC hackers I know. There are plenty of interesting talks on the schedule, and some cool BOFs; plus there is an informal gdb meetup (this should be especially interesting, as there are many cool developments in gdb-land).
In keeping with my Emacs mania, this year I wrote a special presentation mode. My presentation is just a text file, in Emacs “outline mode” format; my new mode displays it nicely in a screen-filling frame. I should say, “nicely”, since some kinds of rendering are a pain to do in Emacs, and I couldn’t be bothered.
