See you at LCA 2010!

One of my proposals got accepted for LCA 2010, in Wellington, New Zealand! As usual, there look to be lots of interesting papers at LCA. I'm presenting a tutorial on writing secure privileged programs, which will draw heavily on Chapter 38 of my book.

We're still on schedule for the book to be published in the first half of 2010 (by No Starch Press). Ongoing progress towards publication is regularly updated at

Please keep telling people about the book and the blog!
