In April, 2012, I organized and ran the second-ever DTrace conference (the first had been held in 2008). I found the venue and sponsors, did all the logistics, live streamed and filmed the entire day’s proceedings. It was run somewhat unconference style, with Bryan Cantrill emceeing, so the final list of talks you see below emerged over the course of the day.
Perhaps my greatest feat for this conference was persuading the Oracle DTrace for Linux team to attend and speak!
For a good overview and wrap-up, see Adam’s blog post on dtrace.conf.
