BSDTalk has a brand new interview from the just-finished MeetBSD, talking about PC-BSD 9 with Kris Moore. (18 minutes)
The early bird registration (a cheap $95) for NYCBSDCon has been extended an extra week to match how long they ran it previous years. November 7th, it goes to $125 and walk-in will be $145.
Hasso Tepper helpfully forwarded announcements for the Call for Papers for both EuroBSDCon 2011 and AsiaBSDCon 2011.
Also, there’s probably going to be DragonFly people at 27C3, and I know there’s going to be some at NYCBSDCon 2010. The early registration discount for NYCBSDCon only lasts about 10 more days, so jump on it while you can; it’s crazy cheap.
I’m going. Venkatesh Srinivas is going. Who else is interested? (See the site.)
BSDTalk 198 has 12 minutes of conversation with Matt Olander and James T. Nixon, about MeetBSD. (which is November 5th and 6th.)
The Professional Certification requirements are now published. (via) The tests happen at various conventions around the world, so plan ahead and you should be able to find one near you.
Sevan Janiyan sent along news of a London *BSD meetup happening on August 26th, at The Cleveland Arms in Bayswater, starting at 7 PM.
Of course, you already knew because you watch the BSDEvents feed, don’t you? Well, you should.
Link dumps just so I can get caught up.
Dru Lavigne has listed conventions she’ll be at over the next few months, so if you feel like taking a BSDA exam or just plain helping out at a BSD booth, check the list.
There’s an online hackathon (the 14th!) planned for July 30th through August 2nd for pkgsrc (and probably some NetBSD material too) at FreeNode/#netbsd-code on IRC. Aleksej Saushev’s post has more details. At least it’s cheap to attend!
November 20th, 2010 is the date for BSD-Day, in Budapest. Gabor Pali has a note out inviting developer to attend and give talks. There’s more details on a FreeBSD wiki page.
Undeadly has an article up about recent work on mandoc in a mini-hackathon. It’s mentioned in context with OpenBSD in the article, but mandoc is also present in DragonFly, and is a potential groff replacement. (And I think groff is the last item in base requiring C++? I may be wrong.) Plus, as I’ve said before, I like mandoc’s output. It would be nice to use that for our online man pages, for instance.
NYCBSDCon, happening November 12-14th, in New York City, at Cooper Union, has a call for papers out. (via here and also George) They’re due by the end of July.
November 12-14th, in New York City, at Cooper Union.
There’s a new BSDTalk podcast up, again from BSDCan 2010. This one interviews Henning Brauer and Peter Hansteen about pf, for 20 minutes.
EuroBSDCon 2010 is happening October 8th-10th in Karlsruhe, Germany. (I’ll let you guess the year.) The Call for Papers is out now. The website lists it as “Call for Speakers“, but you have to write an abstract so I suppose that’s close enough. (via lots of places)
Sevan Janiyan passed along a note: there’s a *BSD meetup at the Barrowboy and Banker pub
by London Bridge, in London, the 27th of May. I’d love to attend, both because it’s BSD and because it’s a pub. That pesky Atlantic gets in the way.
FOSSLC has videos of the presentations from the recent BSDCan. (via) I’m listening to Will Backman’s keynote right now about the BSD community based on his BSDTalk work.
Update: Dru has a list of videos and pictures.
Have I managed to forget all this time to add Dru Lavigne’s excellent BSD Events Twitter feed to my link list on the Digest? Yes, I did – fixed.
