BSDNow 267 is posted a bit early this week, with an interview of Michael W. Lucas, about his upcoming Absolute FreeBSD 3rd edition and local BUG.

There’s a KnoxBUG BSD user group meeting in Knoxville, Tennessee, with the topic of “Real-world Performance Advantages of NVDIMM and NVMe: A Case Study with OpenZFS“, presented by Nick Principe. It’s happening at 6 PM, tonight. They have the prettiest logo of any BUG that I’ve seen.
There’s a social meeting for NYCBUG tomorrow, September 5th, at Suspenders. As far as I can tell, the only difference between “technical meeting” and “social meeting” is if there’s a presentation. Go, if you are near.
If you are near Stockholm, there’s a BSD User Group meeting tomorrow night. Go, if you are near.
Lots of event notices in here… Watch for what’s near you.
- The next KnoxBUG meeting is September 5th, with a Trident demo. I’ll post a reminder.
