Presenter(s): Rusty Russell
While working on CCAN I realised just how many C coding tricks there are. Regrettably, we spend very little time reading completely foreign code and instead we collect techniques one by one over years.
It needn't be that way: this presentation is a cookbook with examples of all the C programming tricks I have found value in. Not just the basics like valgrind, talloc and the Jenkins hash, but less sane techniques like typesafe callbacks, runtime code updating, C as a scripting language and malloc failure path testing.
Everyone who codes in C will get something out of this talk.

In a rare interview with TED Curator Chris Anderson, Torvalds discusses with remarkable openness the personality traits that prompted his unique ...
