Contributed by johan on from the BQs-R-US dept.

The OpenBSD foundation has issued the following press release:
From: The OpenBSD Foundation
Date: May 28, 2008


The OpenBSD Foundation is pleased to announce that it has completed
arrangements with the University of Alberta in Edmonton to host the
2008 Annual OpenBSD Developer's Conference (C2K8 Hackathon)
from June 7 to June 15, 2008.
The facility support from the University of Alberta Computer Science
Department will provide C2K8 the best facilities yet for the annual
OpenBSD Developer Conference. C2K8 will be the 10th annual event of
its kind. Previous hackathons have produced tools such as the PF
firewall, OpenBGP, relayd and spamd, as well as innumerable
critical improvements to OpenBSD, OpenSSH, and related projects.

This year, the OpenBSD Foundation will disburse approximately $15,000
to support C2K8, enabling more than 50 OpenBSD developers from around
the world to attend this important event. The Foundation thanks
all who have generously donated the resources to make C2K8

The OpenBSD Foundation relies on donations of money and equipment from
corporations and individuals to make events like this one possible. If
you or your organization are interested in making a contribution,
please contact us at:


To ensure that the OpenBSD Foundation can continue to arrange productive events like these, please have your company donate to the foundation and support the project.

    Very cool to see that enough money was donated to the foundation to make C2K8 happen. This proves the success of the foundation and (hopefully) paves the way for more donations in the future.

    Also thanks for the reminder, I will prod my employer to donate again this year. I've also made a small personal donation to C2K8, but that is nowhere near the amount required to organize an event of this scale (and mostly intended as drinking money anyway ;).

    Keep up the good work !
