OpenBSD and Conferences

Contributed by grey on from the conferences and more dept.

Jacek Artymiak has written a brief synopsis of meetBSD here. While he has a link to photographs of his presentation on pf + CARP it looks like it would probably be wiser to wait until the slides are made available on the conference website (especially as they appear to be in Polish).

Also, we have an anonymous submission pointing out that there are few modest mentions of OpenBSD in this report at about the events from EuroBSDCon 2004.

And last but not least, fabioFVZ writes in to remind us that registration for OpenCON 2004 has begun. It's just two weeks away, and in addition to the local OpenBEER presentations, it looks as though henning@ will be speaking on a number of topics.

OpenCON - the "ONLY OpenBSD" Conference in Venice - Italy.
Mini FAQ

Where and when?
The conference will take place in Venice, inside the Technological Scientific Park, thanks to Sequenza SpA on 10, 11 and 12 December, 2004

We have the possibility to share information. If you come to the conference you can follow speeches, take part in practices, installations, group demonstrations, buy CD's, LAN party, drink good beer and meet a lot of girls...

    Would love to go but seems like most presentations will be in Italian?

      While other conferences ask for hundreds of dollars for admission fee OpenCON is free and encourages you to donate to Unicef instead. Now that's nice, in my opinion!

        Oh sorry, I meant to write a new posting, not reply to yours, Jonas. I'll try to pay more attention to that next time.

    There's also the 21C3 Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin, .de,
    approaching, for which there will a BSD "corner" for the four
    major BSDs appearing at European conferences (Dragonfly was never
    seen here, and OpenDarwin didn't write in the Wiki yet).

    There will be, as usual, CD and T-Shirt sales from all four
    projects, talk with developers and maybe some hacking (my
    team will do this).

    You can also see BSD on various arches - some NetBSD(TM) guy
    has already announced he'll bring his VAX.

    And enjoy Club-Mate in the meantime (but don't offer it to
    Wim, he prefers beer).
