Sdävtaker is giving a “Hammer administration” presentation at BSDDay, May 29th and 30th in Argentina. (His presentation is the second day.)
Mr_Bond on #dragonflybsd passed along a link to Colin Percival’s post about scrypt, a “provably as strong as possible” encryption function that is designed to withstand brute force attacks. This was presented at BSDCan 2009, but his post has more details and links.
Sdävtaker posted a note about BSDDay, a BSD convention happening in Argentina, on the 29th and 30th of May. There’s also a poster. (PDF)
Murray Stokely very kindly passed me a link to his summary of the 8 videos now online showing presentations from the recent 2009 DCBSDCon.
Of particular interest is Robert Luciani’s talk about M:N threading in DragonFly. Yes, that’s the same Robert Luciani who is participating in Summer of Code with DragonFly to profile kernel contention on multiprocessor systems.
BSDTalk has interviewed Dan Langille, a driving force behind the yearly BSDCan event. The convention is coming up on the 8th and 9th of May. (13 minutes)
There’s a lot of BSD-related events and conferences happening; enough that it’s difficult to track them all. Dru Lavigne has a very good idea: Twitter them at @bsdevents.
‘Sdävtaker’ posted a note about BSDday-AR, happening in Buenos Aires on May 29th and 30th. There’s a Spanish version of the site; no English yet.
Hiroki Sato has posted that the schedule for AsiaBSDCon 2009 is now available. It’s happening in March, and registration will be available soon. There’s still time to get a paper in, if you hurry…
Not only is there going to be BSDA exams available at AsiaBSDCon, but there is now a permanent testing facility for the BSDA in Brazil.
BSDTalk 170 has Marshall Kirk McKusick (His first name’s Marshall? Thought it was Kirk.) talking almost an hour of BSD history at the recent DCBSDCon. I’m assuming it’s going to be the first of several recordings coming from that event.
Dru Lavigne was at DCBSDCon, and her initial notes mention Robert Luciani’s talk on threading in DragonFly.
