Tentatively for the glibc/toolchain talk I’m thinking of giving a brief technical overview of the toolchain ecosystem (compilers, linkers, runtime FOSS projects) and then focus more on how one could get involved in those communities in India.

If there’s anything specific anyone would like me to cover then please let me know, I’ll be happy to include that information.

I think people would be curious to know how you got involved with glibc and your journey of becoming a contributor to that project.
