The Swedish OpenBSD/SSH fundraiser runs for the second time at the same location as last year, on the 16th of June where we will mingle with other BSD fanatics, listen to talks about BSD development, recent KerberosV advances and OpenBSD commercial installations among other things.
There will be workshops again, this time I'm planning on making a VPN shoot-out between various kinds of VPN solutions (ssh-tun, OpenVPN and of course IPSec) and we might even rerun the gig-link trunk speed bench again, with better drivers, to see if we can beat the half-assed rates we got last year.
As usual, the webdesign is lynx-friendly (meaning: made by someone clearly lacking in the aesthetical department - me) and updated continuously as soon as I get hard facts to add.
No entrance fee this time either, free food on the evening for everyone that confirms to me beforehand and the same helpful staff as last time.
Don't forget to bring your hard earned cash in small unnumbered bills and we'll make sure they get put to good use. Some of it might even reach the project, like the ~5000 EUR the last slackathon brought in!
Thanks all who donated personally, or blackmailed their companies to donate something back to OpenBSD/SSH last year!
I am looking into getting a sponsorships for a few European devs flown in to talk/attend, and will of course see to it that any attending devs and speakers get free beer again.
Don't forget, half of this event is what you bring. Don't be afraid to jump in on workshops or speeches, everyone's welcome. If you have ideas on other workshops or topics for short flash-talk sessions we could hold, speak up on the maillist (address on the website) and we'll see what we can arrange. We will have access to lots of normal and weird hardware as usual.
The site is in Swedish only at this time, there will be an English translation RSN(tm).
Hope to see you there!
