The PC has accepted another moonshot talk!

eBPF is great, but: unfortunately it gravitates to the appliance
world model (lumping data and control in one pile) - which is ideal
for solving simple one-off business problems.
Writing complex network services with eBPF is a lot more painful.

In this moonshot talk, Sebastiano Miano et al introduce
the Polycube project that eases ability to write complex
network services with eBPF.
Polycube network services have an architecture that moves
away from the appliance model by separating data from control
and management plane. With its model-driven architecture,
Polycube exposes REST APIs for service management.

This talk will go into some detail of the Polycube APIs
and abstractions and then illustrate the power of Polycube
with a small live demo.
