NYCBSDCon 2008 Registration Open

Contributed by jason on from the Friends-Of-OpenBsd-Are-Required dept.

George R. writes in about this next month's BSD conference in New York City:

We are proud to announce the release of the speaker's presentations and that registration is now open for NYCBSDCon 2008. The conference will be held at Columbia University on October 11 and 12 in Manhattan.

The speaker line-up is an impressive list of developers and systems administrators from all of the BSD projects.

Editor's Note: This is a very OpenBSD-friendly conference. Attendees are advised to register early to reserve a seat!

Update: There will also be a PF BoF session during Saturday's lunch break.

We strongly encourage everyone to register as soon as possible. Early registration is $95 and includes not just the meetings, but also breakfast and lunch for both Saturday and Sunday. Walk-ins will be charged $145. With valid current identification, the Columbia University staff, students and faculty rate is $50. Other full-time students can also receive this discounted rate with valid identification.

Friday evening, attendees will be gathering at Havanna Central at 2911 Broadway between 113th and 114th streets beginning at 7 pm. That will also be the location for the Saturday night social. There are plenty of other non-presentation activities such as:

  • The BSD Certification Group will be holding BSDA exams. There will be general Unix review cram sessions over the course of Saturday.
  • Live on-site reporting of the conference happenings will be provided by BSDTalk's Will Backman.
  • Birds of a Feather (BoF's)

Any conference profits will be donated to the BSD projects, as done in years past. More information is available at the NYCBSDCon 2008 website. See you there!
