  • BSDCan on Google’s Open Source Blog

    A coworker of mine, Kirk Russell, just posted an excellent summary of BSDCan through the years on the Google Open Source Blog.I wasn't able to make it to BSDCan this year due to family commitments, but I did make it to another open source conference later this summer that I also wrote about on Google's open source blog.Kirk and I haven't worked closely together but we both do our best at evangelizing BSD and open source inside our respective corners of the company. It's great to see his post about all the excellent work happening in the BSD community on a corporate blog.
