NYCBUG Wed Sept 7: Teaching OSs with FreeBSD and DTrace


NYCBUG is meeting tomorrow night, with George Neville-Neil presenting DTrace work used as college-level teaching material, and talking about more places it could be used.  Go if you are near New York City, interested in teaching, or you know – BSD.  It’s in a different location than the normal monthly meetings.

Adding a new “BUG” category, cause there’s enough ongoing BSD user group activity these days that it’s a reoccurring theme.  That makes me happy.

BSDNow 148: The place to B… A Robot!


This weeks’ BSDNow has an interview with Edicarla Andrade & Vinícius Zavam about FreeBSD-powered robots.  Yep, robots.  There’s other news there too, but it’s not as interesting unless it is about lasers.

If you didn’t already look at it, BSDNow’s summary of BSDCan events is worth going to; it’s complete enough I deliberately left BSDCan links out of here.  Undeadly has an OpenBSD-specific summary too.

FreeBSD Mastery: Advanced ZFS out


I’d save this for an In Other BSDs note, but that’s a whole week away: FreeBSD Mastery: Advanced ZFS is published, available in electronic and printed editions.  I suspect this would be interesting to non-BSD users, too.

Several book links this week.

Thing I should link more regularly: Garbage, a podcast that isn’t specifically about BSD but happens to cover it a lot.  I linked to it when it was starting, but didn’t catch new episodes (fixed by finding the RSS feed).  There’s been a bunch since then, so you have plenty of listening material now.

There’s a lot of convention links this week, which is mostly an accident.  If any of them are near you, go!  BSD conventions are always fun, in my experience.

That first link is important.  DragonFly, as a project, hasn’t had issues like that yet, but that’s more a side effect of it being a smaller project rather than anything else.

End of year donations


Even though DragonFly is not incorporated as a non-profit, there’s been a rash of unsolicited donations in the last few weeks, all of which are appreciated.  For end-of-year – or start-of-new-year donations – there’s also the 501(c)3 organizations behind FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD, too.

Locales everywhere


John Marino sent a helpful link to show the cross-platform work he’s been involved in: He brought the locale work from Illumos into DragonFly over the summer (look for his name on commits), and now it has been brought from DragonFly into FreeBSD, with Baptiste Daroussin reporting on the process.  If there’s any OpenBSD/NetBSD developers reading, with an interest in locales, this may be useful..

(someone correct me if that’s not the right Illumos link)

BSDNow 098 is up with the normal collection of news and links, plus an interview with David Meyer of Xinous – which I infer is using FreeBSD to underpin their main project.  I always find the decision/planning around major commercial open source interesting, cause the open source aspect changes the game, so to speak.
