Tuesday, March 15, 2022 - 11:00 am11:45 am

Michael Kehoe, Confluent


Created in 2013, eBPF is a newer Linux kernel technology that will revolutionize SRE's ability to observe, serve and protect the infrastructure we're responsible for. While eBPF has the potential to completely change the way we do our daily work, only a minority of companies are taking advantage of its power. This session will be an introduction to eBPF that will allow the attendee to see its uses and capabilities first hand, and see how to get started using it.
