Join us at #ylibc on OFTC!
ylibc is a community of software developers, researchers, and students who share common interests.
- (Reasons y-naught to implement your own libc) -- musl exists -- and we talk about C a lot
- Programming language theory and theory of computation
- Compiler design, soft- and hard-ware emulation techniques
- Operating systems and systems programming (incl. embedded)
- High-performance computing and data sciences (incl. modelling and simulation)
- Mathematics, in particular pertaining to these topics
- GPU, TPU, IPU, etc. programming and code generation (OpenCL sister website)
- Quantum computing has its own channel (yes, we need a logo/website -- volunteers?)
- Filesystem design discussion and development occurs at 9p.is (relates to xstatic kernel and filesystem)
- ... and others (what motivates you?)
- To provide a safe space (focused environment) for, and especially promote cross-pollination of, the above topics
- To encourage community members to work on their own FOSS projects, while collectively supporting each other (via expertise, etc.)
- To offer website hosting, version control [git], etc. hosting services to community members
- To soon offer reading materials (papers, books, etc.) in these areas, and/or point to them if required by license
- To soon offer an Articles section whereby high-quality contributed articles on the above (and related) topics are published, hosted, and promoted here
- To eventually provide legal and financial support to these projects
- These rules are subject to change at any time
- It's not complicated -- use common sense and please be respectful of others' views, time, and efforts
- Please do not complain about your colleagues or bring personal/work drama here
- No politics except for relevant policy/industry news
- All other topics are on-topic until they're not -- make room for real discussion, but feel free to speak up about anything
- Strong/unpopular opinions are welcome, but this is an evidence-based community; no conspiracy theories
- Take care of yourself. Famous last words: "I'm only in two IRC channels at the moment and I don't see the number growing very rapidly so I think productivity wont be harmed so much"
- Recognize that everyone comes with different backgrounds and that minutiae to one might be purview of another. Experts think everything they know is obvious
Community members may have access to special computing resources on a first-come, first-serve basis. Rules apply.
Shell accounts (with
public_html directory) are available to active members only.
If you need hardware or virtual computing resources/infrastructure for your FOSS project(s), please ask.
