This is from USENIX LISA 2018... just appeared minutes ago. Enjoy!
Let me just say that I don't really know much of anything about systemd and as such, I'm not even sure I care. I know that people either like systemd or really, really, hate systemd and that there is a very slim slice of global users that don't care one way or the other. I also know that literally everything in life can be turned into a punchline joke if you link it to systemd. You don't even have to understand the specifics of the joke, you just know that if systemd is part of the punch line that you are supposed to laugh. Now after all that, here is the real reason for this post.
I was listening to episode 262 of the Linux Unplugged podcast in which there is a discussion of Benno Rice's BSDCan 2018 keynote called "The Tragedy of systemd." First, the discussion was really, really good and certainly thought provoking. I would highly recommend listening to the discussion. It was interesting enough that I had to go and actually find the keynote presentation and watch it in it's entirety. Remember what I said at the start of this post, I don't really know anything about systemd nor do I know if I even care. And yet I am willing to say it was a very good presentation.
What I think really made this a good presentation was that Benno discusses the type of impact our public systemd stances can have on a project and on a community (think Linux) as a whole. So I would like to encourage all of you to listen to episode 262 of Linux Unplugged podcast and watch Benno Rice's BSDCan 2018 keynote. Who knows? Even if you don't change your opinion of systemd, you might just change how you publicly use your opinion of systemd.
It is Red Hat Summit time again and this video is from today. Since I'm a big systemd fan, of course I'd post this video.
There have been a ton of conferences in the last couple of months... and luckily a lot of the presentations were recorded and have been posted. Here is Lennart Poettering's presentation from the systemd.conf 2016 conference on, "State of the Union / Portable Services". Enjoy.
On July 5th, 2016 Michael Biebl spoke at DebConf16 on systemd in Debian. This was an update to the talk last year. Enjoy!
Did you know there was a systemd conference? Well there is... and it was even held recently... and the videos from it were published rather quickly. Here is Lenny giving a status update. Enjoy! The first 10.5 minutes are announcements so skip to 10:30 to get to the start of the actual talk.

Linux Weekly News had a write-up in their Weekly Edition last week... of Lennart Poettering's talk (Containers with systemd) at LinuxCon Japan 2015. That article should be available freely later this week... but I found a recording of what appears to be the same talk at a different event from April 2015. Here are the slides. Enjoy!
