MeetBSD California unConference and DevSummit

The FreeBSD Foundation is a proud sponsor of MeetBSD California, which will be held in Mountain View, California November 5-6. There will be a Foundation booth at this event with lots of swag and informational brochures. Be sure to stop by to say hi, get your questions answered, suggest ideas for future funded projects, and consider making a donation.

If you are in the California area and have a commit bit (src, ports, or docs) or have participated in a FreeBSD Google Summer of Code project, you're welcome to sign up for the DevSummit the day before the conference. If you need to be sponsored (i.e. don’t have a FreeBSD commit bit), let Kris know and he’ll add you to the wiki page.

    MeetBSD Poland

    The Foundation is pleased to be a sponsor for MeetBSD, to be held in Krakow, Poland July 2-3. Tomasz Dudzisz, one of the organizers of MeetBSD, recently sent a thank you to the FreeBSD Foundation Board of Directors:


    We would like to thank you for your generous donation which we received a few days ago. Your contribution makes it possible for us to organize the best BSD event in our part of Europe. With the help of donations from supporters such as you, we can give a great chance for participants to talk to the FreeBSD project's contributors in person.

    We believe that high-calibre technical content of the offered lectures and unforgettable atmosphere of the side talks make meetBSD one of the greatest UNIX-oriented conference not only in Poland but world wide.

    We hope for your continued support in the future. Once again thank you for your generous donation.


    Thanks! We agree that sponsoring conferences provides many benefits to the FreeBSD community.

    FreeBSD Kernel Internals Lecture Posted

    The first lecture from Kirk McKusick's full length FreeBSD Kernel Internals course has been posted to the BSD Conferences channel on YouTube. It's been about 10 years since I first took a shortened version of this course at FreeBSDCon 1999, and only a few years since I took the follow up kernel code reading course in Berkeley, and I highly recommend this unique resource to others.This makes the 24th video uploaded to the BSD Conferences channel since I created it just over a month ago. Thanks to Julian Elisher, Jason Dixon, Tomasz Dudzisz, and Kirk McKusick for uploading the conference videos and for contributing to our growing page of tips about video production and publishing on the FreeBSD Wiki.As of this writing we have 644 unique subscribers to the channel and approximately 400 daily views of these videos. To date the most popular videos have been Kris Kennaway speaking about the New features in FreeBSD 7 at MeetBSD 2007, and Jason Dixon's tongue-in-cheek BSD is Dying talk at NYCBSDCon 2006. Note to conference organizers: high level talks about the new features, or talks by speakers as entertaining as Jason Dixon are likely to be well received. The YouTube analytics to the right show the top 10 most popular videos from the channel as well as some demographic information.
