You MUST register through eventbrite to gain access to this session (Day 3).

Zeek executes scripts by compiling them into Abstract Syntax Trees (ASTs) and then, for each instance of a function call or event handler, recursively evaluating the nodes in the AST. This approach provides flexibility and ease-of-implementation, but comes with some performance costs. We'll discuss those costs and give an overview of an experimental new approach based on further compiling the ASTs down to a low-level abstract machine.
