This week’s BSDNow talks about a lot of OpenBSD news, gets into UNIX history, and interviews Kris Moore about FreeNAS/TrueNAS/TrueOS/etc.
If you are nearby, KnoxBUG is having a presentation from Caleb Cooper tomorrow night, titled “Advanced BASH Scripting“.
I like it just for the title: Josh Grosse is presenting about IPv6 at the SemiBUG meeting scheduled for tomorrow. Go, if you are near.
All done at the last minute!
BSDNow 189 has a nice roundup of BSD projects in Google Summer of Code, along with an interview of Wendell of Level1Techs.com.
It really does work, that lead-in, and it’s on BSDNow episode 188.
It’s happening tomorrow night at the NYCBUG meeting: a yes.c code reading. (more details) Go, if you are close.
Odd batch of links this week.
Your BSD-related fiction book of the week (year? decade?) :’git commit murder‘ is out, set at a (fictional) BSD convention.
This week’s BSDNow has no interview, but covers most every BSD to some extent, and talks about something I find super-interesting: a BSD phone.
KnoxBUG is meeting tonight – there’s no speaker scheduled, so it will be open discussion.
More thinking topics than version changes this week, which is interesting.
BSDNow 186 gets back into the convention grind after last week’s news about new roles: coverage of the recent AsiaBSDCon, and an interview of Philipp Buehler.
Michael W. Lucas will be presenting at SemiBUG tomorrow, talking about the OpenBSD web stack.
Much better than last week, but there wasn’t any hurricane-force winds this week – which helps.
BSDNow 185 has existing host Kris Moore performing his last episode (because $dayjob) and Benedict Reuschling coming in to replace him. Allan Jude is unchanged, of course. As they correctly point out, 185 weeks of on-time video content is a tremendous achievement so far. This week’s episode is 55 minutes of talking with the old and the new staff.
Sepherosa Ziehau went to AsiaBSDCon 2017 and gave a talk on his work with DragonFly’s networking. He’s published a report of his trip, which comes with a link to his paper, his presentation, and pictures of who he met.
Note that the PDF and the Powerpoint slides links are different; one is the paper, one is the talk. The Powerpoint slides contain the benchmarks linked here in comments, previously.
Way short this week because we had high winds in my area, knocking out power for most people. I didn’t lose power, but I lost my data link.
Michael W. Lucas will be showing up tomorrow with physical copies of his books at the Grosse Pointe Library. (I’m assuming it will be both his fiction and non-fiction BSD books.) If you are near, I bet you can get a signed copy.
