Accidental theme this week: books.
BSDNow’s episode of the week has a number of Raspberry Pi-specific items, plus a discussion of iocage which I was not familiar with.
SemiBUG has a meeting tomorrow, and Craig Maloney will be talking about Ansible. Patrick McEvoy may be streaming the proceeds, too. Are you near Detroit? Then go!
This turned into a BSD User Group event list, which makes me happy. There was nothing like that 3 or 5 or whatever years ago.
This week’s BSDNow has extended notes about FreeBSD and lld, the LLVM linker, plus notes on the NetBSD scheduler, OpenBSD changes, and so on. It’s very ecumenical.
There’s always a rush of links after a holiday, as people sit at home and catch up on what they’ve wanted to do.
This week’s BSDNow: no interview, but a lot of link summary. Does that title make sense if you are outside the U.S.? No matter.
NYCBUG is meeting tonight for an installfest, plus dinner and drinks afterward. Attend if you are close, and especially if you want to get BSD on some odd hardware.
Last anything for the year!
BSDNow 174 this week presents a recap of the 2016 year, including chunks of interviews you may have missed.
Well, now there’s a song stuck in your head if you are me. Anyway, BSDNow 173 has no interview but the usual news, plus some older UNIX history anecdotes I wish I had found first.
Much better this week; I actually have links.
BSDNow 172 has an interview with Rod Grimes, the usual news roundup, plus a feature on a tool called smenu.
I have no BSD-themed links this week. Sorry! It’s been hectic. We return to normal tomorrow.
BSDNow 171 has no interview this week, but more in-depth news articles than normal, including something interesting about bsdiff.
This is another one of those events that’s coming up too soon to wait on my normal BSD Saturday summary post. FOSDEM 2017 is looking for ‘BSD devroom’ talks, with the suggested length being 45 minutes. The deadline is December 10th, in 3 days. Submit a proposal if you will be there.
I have a pretty significant backlog of links for this week – to the point I had to open a separate browser window to sort out open tabs.
The cohabiting part of this week’s BSDNow is about someone running FreeBSD and Gentoo on the same ZFS drive. No interview but lots of material from the recent EuroBSDCon and MeetBSD conventions.
Tennessee area BSD user group KnoxBUG is meeting tomorrow, and Warren Block will be the guest speaker. He’ll be talking about documentation. Going by the linked announcement, there will be both prizes and blame, so something for everyone!
