Since the library was last presented at LPC 2019, a lot has changed.
eBPF is now seemingly on everyone's radar, the eBPF Foundation is a thing,
and more people are using and writing Go-based tools and services than ever.
What does this mean for the library and the ecosystem around it? Who uses it,
who's been contributing, and which use cases does the library enable today?

In this talk, we'll mainly discuss the following topics:
- Short overview of known users and open-source projects that depend on the library
- Features added since 2019 (BTF, CO-RE, bpf-link, trace/kprobe/uprobe, lazy-loading, examples/, ...)
- The road to an eventual 1.0 and parity with libbpf
- Q&A session open to the community

I agree to abide by the anti-harassment policy I agree
