Maarten ter Huurne, one of the main openMSX developers, is having a talk on the T-DOSE conference, a free and yearly event held in The Netherlands to promote use and development of Open Source Software. During this event Open Source projects, developers and visitors can exchange ideas and knowledge. This years event will be held on 25 and 26 October 2014 at the Fontys University of Applied Science in Eindhoven.

From the abstract: "In this talk I will explain what emulation is and how it compares to virtualization and to virtual machines. The difference between high-level and low-level emulation will be discussed, including the trade-offs involved. I will show a timing model that allows high-accuracy emulation to be implemented efficiently. And there will be some fun and surprising uses of emulation demonstrated, such as tool-assisted speedruns (TAS) and single stepping back in time in a debugger.

Most examples will come from openMSX, an open source emulator for the 80's MSX home computer (Z80 based), which is a project I have been active in for over a decade."

The talk is next Sunday on the 2nd day of T-DOSE, at 16:00.

If all goes well, there should be a recording that will be made available on Youtube or another publicly accessible video site.

There is no registration nor entrance fee for T-DOSE, so if you're in or near Eindhoven, you can drop by and see the talk in person.

http://www.treewalker.org/presentations/TDOSE-2014-Inside_an... is the presentation, but perhaps it's better to wait for the video to get online...

The video is now online. Note that I'm a pretty inexperienced speaker and it shows, so please don't expect too much. The start is pretty theoretical; if you want to see the demos, skip to 38 minutes.
