Open Source Developers @ Google Speaker Series: Amit Singh

Monday, December 1, 2008

Amit Singh, Engineering Manager - Mac Development team, will once again be joining us for an update on all things MacFUSE. MacFUSE, an Open Source mechanism that allows you to extend Mac OS X's native file system capabilities, has come along way since its introduction at Macworld 2007. Amit will be sharing all that's new for developers and users in this MacFUSE State of the Union talk. Among other topics, Amit will cover:

  • How to leverage new features in MacFUSE to make your file system act more like a native Mac OS X file system

  • What the upcoming 64-bit support in MacFUSE means for your file systems

  • How to use the new file system templates in MacFUSE to quickly get started on a new file system

  • How to choose the best MacFUSE API for your specific needs

  • How to use the power of DTrace to debug and analyze your file systems

Amit will also address MacFUSE best practices and how these can help you write less code that does more, as well as some advanced little known tips and tricks for the system.

You'll also get to see some interesting and unusual file systems never before seen on Mac OS X.

If you are nearby Google's Mountain View, California, USA Headquarters on Monday, December 8th, please join us for Amit's MacFUSE State of the Union. Doors open at 4:30 PM and light refreshments will be served. All are welcome and encouraged to attend; guests should plan to sign in at Building 43 reception upon arrival. For those of you who cannot join us in person, the presentation will be taped and published along with all public Google Tech Talks. We hope to see you there!
