Re: BPF Virtual Machine Runtime
Just a personal comment.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Talking about "BPF VM" to students raises a lot of confusion, as they expect a full fledged VM and do not undestand what "VM" means in this case. Comparing to Java does not help, as most people think about Java as a language, not as a VM.
So, in my classes I started to present BPF it as a virtual CPU, which is not that far from the reality; this improves the way people quicly understand the concept.
