The 2024 State of eBPF Report, is now available!

On 16 March, the eBPF Foundation and Centre for Networked Intelligence organized the first eBPF Day, India at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, with support from Cisco CSR. The free event gathered both experienced practitioners and those new to eBPF to spread awareness about eBPF technology, discuss novel use cases, and spur discussions around how the research and developer community can leverage eBPF for current as well as future use cases.

92 industry professionals and students joined the event in person, and another 100 joined virtually.

The topics covered included:

  • Introduction to eBPF
  • eBPF use cases
    • Networking: packet flows and CNIs
    • Security
    • Observability
  • eBPF on Android
  • Deploying eBPF at scale
  • Hands-on eBPF

Attendees were privileged to hear from distinguished speakers, who shared their extensive knowledge and experience with eBPF:

  • Keynote from Brendan Gregg of Intel, who has authored books including BPF Performance Tools and Systems Performance
  • Dushyant Behl of IBM
  • Deepak S of Intel
  • Rahul Jadhav of Accuknox
  • Palaniappan Ramanathan of Intel
  • Madhan Raj of Samsung
  • Santosh Fernandes of Walmart

For those who missed the event, a recorded version is available on Youtube.

Feedback from attendees included statements such as “excellent sessions”, “very helpful”, and “very good advice from the keynote”. Attendees also suggested for a future event that there be more focused topic areas such as security, shorter duration events, and new locations such as Hyderabad.

The eBPF Foundation looks forward to hosting many similar events in the future to continue to grow
a vibrant and knowledgeable community.
