BSD in Malaysia


Few days back I’ve met up with Mohd Fazil Azran for a small talk about *BSD at Starbucks coffee. I was interested to know why Malaysian *BSD community is so inactive, and from the discussion, I’d say that the reason is more likely caused by too much of politics in the group, financial issues, lack of interest to share knowledge and blablabla..

So now, I would like to suggest for a complete rebuild of a *BSD open group. It will be a group where everyone shares the same right, and the freedom of speech. No politics, no financial problems (go dutch all the way ), no hidden agenda. Just a group where everyone can share their knowledge freely. Hopefully with this group, we could attract more users to *BSD, as well as building back the trust for *BSD .

The kick off of this new group will be on the 3rd March, where I will give my first talk about FreeBSD - what is FreeBSD, why FreeBSD, FreeBSD ports and who use FreeBSD. My talk will be around 30 to 45 minutes, and afterwards I will be free for questions and discussion, and of course, coffee .

Date: Saturday, March 3, 2012
Time: 2 PM till 5 PM
Location: Old Town White Coffee, Bangsar South (KL)

You should be aware that this would be my first experience, so don’t expect for any professional talk. Everyone is welcome :)

So long.

Moving to Kuala Lumpur

Now that everything is alright I’d like you to inform you that
I’ve got the best chance of my life! I got a job offer in
Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) to work as a System Administrator.
The plan is to move next week on Thursday, the flight is
12 hours, a long boring time :-) That will be my first flight and
I’m a bit nervous :)

The good thing is that the time I have to work for
FreeBSD will not be affected.

I’ve created a new category Kuala Lumpur here in my
Blog. I think that if I find a bit of time I’ll post some
news with some pics.
