Link dumps just so I can get caught up.
- Michael Lucas was interviewed about his new Network Flow Analysis (previously reviewed) book, in two parts. Also, he’s speaking at NYCBSDCon, this November 12th-14th.
- Dru Lavigne gave a talk on “Getting Started in an Open Source Community“. (via) In other video news, MeetBSD 2010 videos are available now.
- Random Google searches turned up a DragonFly installation video on Via hardware.
- Back to convention items: Kirk Russell has a short BSDCan recap. (via)
- Also, cluster ssh.
- Stathis Kamperis updated DragonFly’s One True Awk. (Huh. Brian Kernighan’s not at Bell Labs anymore.)
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sdävtaker has posted about the pre-call for papers, for BSDday Argentina. Check his post for topic and submission details.
pkgsrcCon is happening May 28th-30th in Basel, Switzerland. The event web page has note on location and hotel information. (thanks, S.P.Zeidler)
