Lots of different items, probably because of BSDCan.
I am typing BSDXXX phrases a lot, it seems. BSDNow 250 goes over the just-finished BSDCan. There’s a ton of events, so get reading/listening.
BSDCan is running this weekend. There is, depending on what time you are reading this, a livestream.
BSDNow 249 is covering a really wide range of topics including an uncommon amount of NetBSD, so I’m going to do the easy thing and repeat the summary: “OpenZFS and DTrace updates in NetBSD, NetBSD network security stack audit, Performance of MySQL on ZFS, OpenSMTP results from p2k18, legacy Windows backup to FreeNAS, ZFS block size importance, and NetBSD as router on a stick.”
Note the eleventy-jillion hackathon reports.
Your thinkpiece for the week: The cultural shift from not selling out to blowing up. There’s a BSD analogy possible there.
Hey, another terse title, and I didn’t even write it! This BSDNow episode talks about the recent ZFS conference. It’s interesting to think there can be a meetup about a file system that isn’t really held to a vendor at this point. There ‘s a number of other articles, too – I’m just a bit late noting it.
Some nice tech explanations this week.
Totally last-minute summary, but I’m hitting every BSD category.
As the title says, you can register for BSDCan 2018 now.
(Not leaving this for the weekend BSD summary cause I need to remind myself to plan for travel if possible.)
Losing power at home this week put a dent in my reading throughput, so to speak, but this will do.
One of these links is a warning, but you won’t know until it’s too late.
The first news item about pfSense is not necessarily new, but new to me.
Sepherosa Ziehau presented on DragonFly’s network stack at the just-concluded AsiaBSDCon 2018. He posted a link to the badges, his paper, and his slides.
Very much last-minute; compiled 20 minutes before bed Friday night.
BSDNow 232 this week covers FOSDEM 2018, cause both hosts were there. There’s other news items, too.
Note the non-profit link; that may be useful to you.
I’m a bit late posting it, but: BSDNow 227 covers Open, Free, and Net this week.
Last of the year!
Don’t forget any end–of–year donations you want to make, either.
The Semibug Christmas dinner is tomorrow. They need reservations, so if you want to go and haven’t told anyone yet – hurry!
