George Rosamond reminds us that NYCBSDCon is just days away:
NYCBSDCon is an annual BSD Unix technical conference organized by the New York City *BSD User Group (NYC*BUG). Don't miss this great opportunity to expand your network amid the tumultuous economic environment.
The conference schedule is packed with some of the best and brightest of the *BSD projects, with topics ranging from file systems to the portable C compiler, not to mention an array of developer and systems administrator related meetings.
Editor's Note: This is a conference I look forward to, particularly since it's really the only one in the U.S.A. that has a strong OpenBSD presence. There will be quite a few OpenBSD developers, so come out and join us for couple days of presentations (and beer).
Registration is only $95 and is available at http://www.nycbsdcon.org/2008/register.html. Full-time students and Columbia University affiliates receive the discounted rate of $50 with proper identification. Please note that early registration now ends on Thursday at noon, when the conference price jumps to $145. Registering at the conference on Saturday will cost $195.
The conference kicks off Friday night, October 10th at 6 pm with an informal social at Havanna Central at 2911 Broadway between 113th and 114th Streets across from Columbia University. We encourage all attendees, speakers and sponsors to join us that evening. The Havanna Central will also host our social on Saturday evening, which will feature an open bar. The event requires your conference badge for entry.
Attendees will have an opportunity to take the BSD Certification exam by registering at https://register.bsdcertification.org//register/events/nycbsdcon. Two exams will take place over the course of the weekend, and several Unix cram sessions will be conducted on Saturday. We have also received the just released BSD Magazine for free distribution at the conference.
The conference registration table opens at 8 am on Saturday. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to attendees on both Saturday and Sunday.
