is giving the following presentation at the Hacker Dojo in Mountain View,
on April 12th at 7:30 PM
bup (a git-based backup tool), redo (a build tool like make only simpler
powerful), and sshuttle (a poor man's VPN), all of which happen to be
written in python. We will try to answer at least some of these
- If python really that slow? If so, how does bup process 80
megabytes/sec in an interpreted language?
- Just how large of a file can you put into a git repository? And how
can bup store files 100x larger than that?
- If parallelism in python is so impossible, why does 'redo -j5' work
better than 'make -j5' ?
- How exactly does sshuttle make a connection if there's no sshuttle
installed on the other side? (Hint: it's an internet worm.)
- If you were to design a massively distributed peer-to-peer
filesystem or database with negative latency, caching, and support for
incremental updates of huge files, how should you do it and why would
you call it "git-based backup software"?
How many people are interested? (reply with +1)
